An elderly woman must make good on a promise when her oldest friend starts showing signs of dementia.
Despite a busy, production-filled summer working on Artistic Venture and The Girl from Carolina, we decided to produce a short between one and three minutes long for the Project Greenlight contest. Pillow Pact was filmed and edited between July 26 – 30, 2014 as part of an application for the contest.
In Pillow Pact, two old friends enact a pact they’d made years before: that if one were to begin to lose her mind in her old age, the other would peacefully end her suffering. The story was inspired by a series of conversations with Alex’s parents and parents-in-law.
