I had to make a video exploring the post-apocalyptic landscape. It also had to have something to do with zombies, maybe? To top it all off, I was in Boulder with limited resources (I wasn’t an upperclassman, even though I was, and so I didn’t have access to good equipment. Thanks, University) and I didn’t know many actors around Boulder. What was I to do? What could I do? I could create an apocalypse of images. An apocalypse of sound. An apocalypse of Shrimp.
This is still surprisingly powerful. It’s connection to the Katrina tragedies (Both before and after the levees broke), it’s connection to the feeling of encroaching doom I had recently experienced (and anyone feels when they’re facing their personal apocalypses), and this is all tied together through image (Mostly photos of water damage acquired through the Wikimedia Commons) and Andrew’s reading which is both simmering in rage and resigned to doom. I do think the narration and the film goes on a bit too long, and we don’t need much explanation for why or how this happened (also, I don’t think many of us would know or care why the world had ended). Still, though, I’d say this is another strong entry in the Henceforth filmography.
