A woman sits on a beach one night and reminisces about her life. Amidst the nostalgia, she struggles with the more traumatic memories of her past, and considers the prospects of opening herself up to newfound love.
More Than Love is actually the first film in an anthology film project that is currently in production titled, “The Gallery”. The four short films in the anthology take a peek into the personal and intimate aspects of four people’s lives. In More Than Love, that person is Amy.
The script for the film was written roughly three years ago by my good friend Josiah Simpson, who I’ve known since I was 8 and has been making movies with since middle school. He got the idea from a short poem he wrote, and began attaching images to each of the lines. The poem eventually became Amy’s narration that runs through the majority of the film. I fell in love with the story immediately because of the simplicity of it, but also because of the many heavy topics that it covers in such a short time span.
As the film was being completed, Josiah had already gotten inspiration for three other stories that were similar and worked complementary to More Than Love, and after sitting down and hearing the ideas for them, we knew they had to be made and I knew it would work so nicely as an anthology film, where each of the stories were presented together as a group.
The second film in the anthology is currently in production. Those interested can keep up to date with the progress of the rest of the films at:
