Such a Shitty Time

What does loneliness sound like? Does it have a color palette? Creating work in 2020 made us ask these questions and so many more. This short gave us the opportunity to create an intimate world for two that explored relationships and human connections in a time when it was so hard to come by. We were honored to work on the sound and color on another Coop production.

This short explores the need for love and human relationships in the time of COVID and imagines a friend-for-hire service in NYC for those who are lonely and isolated.
