After a plague wipes out most of humanity, transforming them into mindless creatures, The Grim Reaper struggles with boredom as he kills time more than he does people. Kali Kaminski, the lone human survivor, struggles to maintain her sanity while keeping creatures and lethargy at bay. These two individuals inevitably meet and find kindred spirits in one another changing both of their outlooks on the world they find themselves trapped in.

    After Ashes turned out to be the most ambitious film I've ever set out to make. It was a difficult tightrope walk of tones, implementing Fantasy and Horror elements into a comedic drama-- similar in tone and style to Guillermo Del Toro, but confined to the limits of a short film. It was a fun challenge, and allowed me to refine my style.

    The film has been the best example of what I set out to do: Tell stories that I've never seen before in novel and strange ways.
