I Wanna Know Everyone in My Building

After a painful break up some people go to Italy and India to eat ,pray and love. I started doing standup where I developed the idea for this short. One night at an open mike whilst slowly dying onstage I realized that the piece needed to be set to music and that it was going to be a better film than a standup routine.

 

I have always lived in small apartment buildings where I knew everyone by name. Until, my husband unexpectedly and permanently departed and I found myself living in a gargantuan skyscraper with 1800 other tenants. Lonely and needing companionship I set out to make friends with all my new neighbors.

This short was one of several films independently animated and bought to Sheila Nevins at HBO Documentary films where they became the beginning of Getting Over Him in 8 Songs or Less.
