>>> FILM SYNOPSIS & BACKGROUND
This was a short film I made in college, not for a class, but just for the sheer expression and conceit of "making a film".
My initial goal was to make a film starring an inanimate object.  So that became the water bottle.  

The other key component was a copy of Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, a 1000+ page book featuring almost entirely unfamiliar quotations.
I half-randomly selected one to be the final payoff line which our character writes in her notebook.

"Inspiration cannot be stored in a barrel, like salt herrings to dole out."
