I made this video in response to a recent death in the family, it was the first death I have ever encountered, it was strange, especially as an atheist/agnostic to comprehend the idea of not existing. It was confusing and painful to think that her life has ended instead of going on into some kind of afterlife. The more I reasoned with myself I found a balance between the two, that even if one doesn’t exist and is in essence is in ‘nothingness’ nothingness exists (to those alive). We are so scared, shocked and even horrified of dying, but as so many say – it is the only thing we can be sure of in life, and even if death is painful, in death there is no pain – as pain would not exist anymore. It is strange to think of the eternity of death, it is immeasurable, infinite, I think that’s why it is so hard to grasp.
The video was made on a £0 budget, just me, my camera, a DIY light and a good friend. I wanted to do more than just a test, I wanted to polish this a bit further, and for a short made in 3 hours I think I did okay.
