Several vignettes weave together the lives of New Yorkers who overcome the inherent loneliness found in the city.
Anatomy of the Lonely is my debut feature film and flirtation with microbudget filmmaking. The cast is composed of non-actors as well as classically trained performers, artist, musicians, and comedians. The film was shot on the AG-HVX200 utilizing the P2 workflow, with the Cinevate Brevis35 System and Nikon Prime Lenses.
The crew was lean and efficient and allowed us to capture something authentic and intimate. It's a portrait of New York City from a specific period in my life.
It played in various incarnations around New York at Festivals most notably The New Filmmaker Series held at the Anthology Film Archives. We also ran a ground roots campaign that focused on "Hosting Your Own Screening" of the movie through social media and mailing lists.
