"The Quiet Escape", a Short Film About an Artist Jaded by the Omnipresent Noise in the City

Brooklyn based cinematographer Ed David recently created this amazing short film in which well-written narrative monologuing tells a story of an artist and ten-year Brooklyn resident who has become fed up with the City, it's noise, and the lack of human connection ironically found in a city of millions.

This film is a quiet war cry in favor of quiet over loud to help induce creativity. Also the rent is too damn high. It is an eternal story. It's my attempt at escape from the expensive, cold, and uncaring loud city and my journey into the quiet peaceful less overly-stimulated country. Well more like suburbs, and I don't really escape too much, I stay kind of close.

The film is shot and edited beautifully, with everything being done by David himself. When not making personal projects like this, Ed David is a freelance director of photography and filmmaker through his company Kitty Guerrilla.
