The Premise

How far will you go to save the love that you've lost? What would you do to save that lost love? Would you still do its even if its all in your mind?

This is the driven passion of a Patient receiving experimental therapy to re stage, in his mind, the events that lead to the loss of his love changing the outcome with him saving her life. However, the therapist has crueler intentions with the therapy.

This is what the short film A Conversation From Within will achieve to create. The non linear story line will have twists and turns revealing the fate of our characters as they experience love, loss, and manipulation.

If you love mind bending films such as Memento, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and La Jetée then don't look no further! This production is aims to strive for creating a visual and original story through suspense, romance, deception, and how psychological alterations are affecting the Patient protagonist.

    Meet The Director/Writer/Producer

    Gregory Brown as 1st Assistant Camera working on set.

    My name is Gregory Brown born and raised in Austin, Texas. I've always wanted to become a film director and its a not just a job for me but a passion. After graduating high school I went to the University of Colorado at Boulder graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Film Studies. After graduation I've move backed to my hometown to pursue a career in the film industry.

    I've started working as a Set PA and Key Set PA for many feature length films which have gone on to win awards and be screened at festivals such as South By Southwest and Sundance. My progression in the industry was me moving into the Camera Department where I have become 1st/2nd Assistant Camera and Camera Operator for a feature length film, short films, music videos, commercials, web series, television, and live event filming. In addition I still pursue working as a Assistant Director concurrently having working  on a feature length film, a short film, and web series.

    I am grateful for all of the help to help achieve this dream of mine and to make a great short film that is original and entertaining. In the current climate of the film industry any aspiring director needs to be recognized through works that are created independently. Your donations will not just come to create a great short film but allow for myself to grow and assist as the springboard for a future career as a film director.
