Director Cole Webley's beautiful and moving short film

"For Those Lost, Just Not Forgotten"


Director Cole Webley just completed this beautiful, powerful and moving passion project, a short film titled "For Those Lost, Just Not Forgotten".
"The film is a visual expression of the angst of being lost - emotionally," explains Webley. "It represents something we all go through, and something that is integral to the human experience. We certainly don't like it, but we almost can't avoid feeling this way at some time or another."  
The imagery of the film is set to a poem written by Chateau Bezerra, an Art Director at AKQA, whom Webley went to university with and where the two collaborated on some of the director's first spec work.
Feeling the need to re-charge his batteries, after a busy year shooting commercial films, Webley began this project as a personal creative outlet. He had been shooting a lot of footage and was in the process of editing it together, and trying to figure out a way to tie it all together, when he showed the footage to Bezerra who was immediately inspired to write the poem. 
Webley instantly fell in love with the poem, and it provided him with the structure and the narrative he'd been seeking. He then shot more footage, to fill in the gaps, and began cutting it to the poem after the voice over was recorded.
