the director's cut
Welcome to our Short Film, Melody. This common college love story is a silent film with a musical twist. When you press play there will be instructions; pause the video, follow the instructions, and enjoy your unique viewing experience!
Navigate to the linked Spotify Playlist below the film or use the scan code to pull up the playlist on a separate device. Select any song from the playlist to listen to while you watch the film. Each song will tell the story of Melody in a unique way.
Creating and sharing Melody was a truly profound experience for everyone involved and we cannot express enough the immense gratitude we have for everyone who has taken the time to experience it with us.
One of the aspects of the film we love is it's interpretive ability. Depending on the song selection the story can go from a sweet love story to a sentimental lesson about growth. Using the interactive nature of this project, we would like to share another alternative interpretation which more personally reflects some of our experiences.
Considering much of the cast and crew of this film are members of the LGBTQIA+ community, we thought it relevant to share this perspective in this updated version of Melody. The Director's Cut includes some alternative scenes which represent this distinct interpretation and is accompanied by a unique playlist entirely comprised of songs by LGBTQIA+ artists.
We hope you take the time to experience the film in a way that is reflective of many of our creators. And if you appreciate this message, we have included below some remarkable links to organizations focused on helping people in the LGBTQIA+ community.
Thank you so much for your support. We hope you enjoy
