About the Film

My film is about a young girl in the middle of a desert who spots an oasis that she thinks will solve all of her problems. However, she is in for more than what she bargained for…

I am excited to be able to publicly display my work aside from just a URL on the internet. Having an audience react to your work in a public setting for a festival is a rare occasion and I am grateful to be given this opportunity! Always a pleasure to see the amount of love and hardwork you devoted to a film projected on the big screen.

An Interview with Nneka Myers

What has been a real high point point for you in creating this film? What excites you about your submission to the FilmOneFest?
Being able to explore colour and design in an exotic setting was not only a challenge but a fun one! The film helped push my artistic level and ability to create a world in which the viewer can feel immersed in.
A questions about “One Minute” films: As you think about one minute films, what kinds of possibilities are there for this medium? What does it mean to you particularly?

This was my first time doing a one minute film but there are a lot of opportunities for this medium! It helps push your creative limit, and you can come up with a quality piece that can be memorable. Despite the limit, one minute is actually a lot of time to work with and you realize when something is not working or too lengthy and not conveying your message well faster. I believe it gives a great challenge in storytelling – keeping things concise and to the point.
Talk a little about your influences: If you think about the gifts and skills you bring to film-making, what do you find energizes you most? What inspires you or compels you in your art form, and in what ways are you inspired?

Observing life and appreciating the smallest things no matter what form.
