If only the “objects” we use everyday can tell us how they feel. How they love us every time we use them. Only if they can show us their appreciation that they are not useless and they have a special place in our lives. When five fell, shows us a new perspective of how simple as a regular eye-glasses, a phone, an umbrella, a scarf and a mug, can feel love too when they are used and feel broken when they are left to be replaced.
She tells me she wants to be a raindrop. She doesn’t mind falling as long as she’s not alone and raindrops are never alone. She always had a new story to tell me: today it’s about being a raindrop. I wish I could’ve been there cause stories aren’t always enough and words can only go so far. This is me.
A pair of glasses that goes blind. A phone that resorts to eavesdropping. An umbrella that longs to be held. A scarf that treasures scent. A cup that wants to be kissed. These are the ways I tried to personify the objects to show they fell in and out of love. Between the five, viewers should be able to relate to different dimensions and roles of a relationship. Whether it’s budding in the early stages, the challenge of long distance, slowly fading feelings, or losing out to someone else. Even the order of the objects in the short show a progression in the relationship. Starting from looking and eventually moving onto touching. - Wesley Chan
You fall. Like a raindrop. [When Five Fell] is like a beautiful poem come to life. The colors… the textures… the mood. Each is conveyed through every carefully placed word and note. As if they were sweetly strung together for that specific purpose. To tell that ultimate love story. Which in my opinion is between life and the girl. Her life to be exact. When she’s finally able to truly love her life and her life to love her back, she falls…for real love.
