Filmed during the COVID-19 pandemic, "Varnish" is a 30-minute film about an elderly man who desperately wants to reconnect with his son. 
I wrote this script and won the MSU screenplay competition held to determine the film for the senior class production. After its selection, I pitched and won the role of Director of Photography. As part of the 17-person crew, my roles on the film also included Colorist and Trailer Editor. 
I worked with the Director and other crew members on every aspect of production, with a special emphasis on the visual language of the film, as I was the Cinematographer for all 67 scenes, which we shot with 19 actors over six months on a Sony FS5.
