In the hot desert monsoon season of Arizona, two best friends have trouble letting go of each other after a tragedy rips them apart.

 

Shot on a SAG Ultra Low Budget, Monsoon was both challenging and rewarding to shoot. We utilized mostly natural light having only the budget for small lights running on house-power. The most fun part of filming was breaking the camera package down, divvying up the components between a few backpacks, and climbing up a mountain with a skeleton crew to capture some incredible sunset vista shots in Sedona, AZ. Coming to streaming platforms this fall.
