“The Days We Share” is a quiet and intimate short film that features one of the many changes a teen can experience when they enter their first year of high school. I wanted the viewer to feel a sense of nostalgia while watching this short film, therefore we incorporated an original lo-fi music score. I also grew up in the 90s and wanted to include trends from that era, which is mostly seen in the protagonist’s wardrobe. Films with high schoolers usually feature characters in over the top situations that are completely unrealistic to what the actual high school experience is, so I wanted to create a film that resembled my experiences as a first-year high schooler.
When I was in high school, I was ridden with anxiety on the uncertainty of what I wanted to do after I graduated. I want this film to assure those who are in or about to enter high school that it’s okay if you don’t have everything figured out. And when it comes to making friendships in high school, my hope is for the viewer to remember to not suppress their feelings. We have enough problems as it is, but our days are always better if we can honestly share them with those that make us feel our best.
