After shooting in December 2014, we are now in post-production for this short film! Perseverance was the name of the game for this project and we're soo thrilled with the footage. Can't wait to share it with you! But for now, here are some still photos from the set.
An observational comedy, "Yes, Obviously" takes you into the heart of Eve and Corey's relationship. These two brave women - who have loved and lived together for one year and seven months - are on a precipice. Grad school.
When Corey gets a letter of acceptance into a prestigious, Ivy League Law School, she proposes to her girlfriend Eve so that they can leave Canada together and chase their dreams. Spurred by excitement, Eve pulls out a camera and insists on filming a time capsule video to remember this "super pivotal and emotional moment" until the end of their days, and captures the hard realizations of two young people struggling to make the "right" decisions for their future.
