Credits: Director, Writer, Editor

Runtime: 5 minutes

Release date: May 2016

Synopsis: An evolutionary journey from the beginning of time to beyond the infinite. Inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Like Kubrick’s iconic masterpiece, “Shelf Space” is open to numerous interpretations and meanings, which are left in the viewer’s hands to create.

Production Notes: Writer/Director Benjamin Patch was searching for a simple way to construct a narrative spanning an immense period of time. “Shelf Space” employs lateral tracking shots and deliberate direction of movement to carry the viewer from the familiar, to beyond our current understanding of the universe.
