Wendy Certain (2017, 17min) 

Set over a four day period, a young girl keeps returning to the same spot in a field surrounded by nature. As her manner becomes increasingly bizarre, she begins interacting with various forms that surround her and terror ensues. The ambiguity between the girl's mental state and the forms is present throughout and the question of whether the appearance of her insanity comes from herself or from the form's control over her remains at the forefront.
