Fernando Vallejo's cinematic tale of heartbreak for School Of Seven Bells' Reappear was shot over 3 days in Los Angeles.

"We purposefully kept the crew at a minimum so I could get raw performances out of the actors, and it helped," Fernando explains. "Principal photography was three days, and the shots of nature were shot as 2nd unit. The reason for shooting a 2.35 aspect ratio was to show the desolation and feeling of emptiness that L.A. can bring. I looked at the films of Altman and Cassavettes as an example.

"I wanted to show a grittier, darker rise of this city that is so often sanitized in films and TV shows. I also didn't want to explain why this couple drifted apart. Once you start explaining things to an audience in a five minute piece, you lose the mystery."
