Since we’re limited by our own perspective, every story can always be told differently. People see things differently. People remember different things. People tell stories differently. Because, well, people are different. We only remember what we can, we need the full picture to see it all.

The Pavement was directed by Taylor Engel. It’s a hypnotic short that explores the idea of differing perspectives of a story by showing how much can change as the camera zooms out to reveal more moments and different perspectives. It’s totally hypnotic.
