THE QUIET ESCAPEA FILM ABOUT LEAVING THE CITY

THE QUIET ESCAPE

Made by film making and cinematographer Ed David. It's a film about leaving the city.

"This film was incredibly fascinating to make - it was the first longer more serious project I have made since college. I originally made a cut of the film quickly and removed it from online because I wasn't happy with it. This time - I took my time. I wrote a long script, read it, saw how it worked, changed lines, and rewrote. I reshot many scenes. It was my own artistic journey to make this film the slow, long way. It was not easy - I would constantly procrastinate because I was scared that when it was done - I would release it and it would be horrible - so this film got me to finish my taxes and clean up my whole apartment.

Man the courage it takes to make a film - to risk all ridicule and put something out there that is completely your idea! Also it kind of felt selfish when I can be doing other things. But the struggle is part of the beauty of it all - to completely immense yourself in trying to make something of meaning. God it's hard work." E. David
