Behind the Scenes with Ash Thorp on “Edifice”

Ash Thorp: “I often get asked about the production details, meanings, and philosophies behind my work. Therefore, I dedicate this to my kindred scholars who enjoy the craft of filmmaking and seek to understand the why of it all.

“I share my shot-by-shot intentions, meanings, philosophies, and in-depth behind the scenes commentary on the production and making of Edifice.

“I hope this speaks to you, my fellow film creatives, and encourages you to further evolve your thoughts and discover your own distinctive voices.”
Watch the final film:

“Edifice is an experimental short film inspired by personal beliefs of who we are, where we come from, and where we are heading; it’s a journey from stardust to singularity.

“This purely cinematic film is intended to stimulate your mind and senses, while provoking further thought about our passage and presence in this world.”
