Production Description

Casting a dark comedic/dramatic short "From the Window with a Garden View," promoting an anti-suicide message. Director states: "Struggling to interrupt his pattern of painting the same picture, Kevin forces himself to start fresh. Though still undecided about his next project, he starts facing the anxiety often caused by a blank page. A sleepless night after his initial resolution, he gets out of bed settled to find a new source of inspiration, but when he spreads the curtains of his room open, he witnesses a man hanged at his window. Kevin decides to bring the corpse into his room before uncovering his utility as a muse for his next painting. The film explores the quest of an identity often shattered by the fear of accepting one-self. In this unusual meeting, the main character will progressively connect with the concept of humanity through the physical manifestation of whom used to be a self-destructive man."
