Exquisite Shorts, Vol. 1

Shorts (as part of Exquisite Shorts) | 2020 
Role: Writer/Directors/Title Design
Series created by Ben Fee

Segments in anthology Exquisite Shorts, derived from the drawing game “exquisite corpse.”
Each filmmaker was given two words to be spoken, shown, or both — one for the beginning of their short and one for the end. Each segment’s last word is the following segment’s first word so that the anthology flows like a stream of consciousness through many tethered minds.

These shorts were filmed in April 2020 during quarantine with whatever resources were available at home.

A black widow’s lover reflects on his final days. 

A man is haunted by the ghost of a spider crab.
