A man explores his dual obsessions, his girlfriend and the art of vacuum packing, in a beautiful story about what it is to love and to never let go. Can a perfect moment be preserved forever?
Tasked with making a short film inspired by a piece of music (Wild Beasts – She Purred While I Grred) on a budget of only £5000, we challenged ourselves to tell an intricate story without dialogue, beautifully shot and about something which, in the tiniest darkest part of the mind, anyone that has ever been in love can relate to no matter how fantastical it may seem.
