Mr. Seek is such an important film to me personally. I wanted to explore the relationship of the father and son under strained circumstances, where cognitive soundness and circumstantial place is represented. These circumstances are then even further tested when the typical father and son dynamic is inverted as the sun goes down. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was an inspiration for the short, bringing into the world another added layer for the two to work through. In the end, I wanted to ask the question: How far does the love of one’s father go?
This film was shot in one day, at one location, with no budget.
