WHEN ALL THE ANIMALS ARE GONE is the story of a father’s battle to protect his grieving son, his wife's grave, and his poor, violated watermelons.
Set in 1938, the film will be shot in grainy, subdued tones, to parallel not only the time period, but the underlying mourning of the newly-motherless farm. Music will be sparse, relying on the sounds of crickets, whippoorwills, and a Martian invasion to create the ambient world.
The film will run approximately 15 minutes, and principle photography will take place over three days. It will be filmed in Southern California and submitted to film festivals soon after.
