TIME AND THE HOUR RUN
Reformer Films- super 16mm short
Samir Patel, Director                                        
Derek Tindall, Director of Photography
The story of an Indian immigrant in rural USA, who is faced with the death of his wife and his struggle to find the purpose of his life's journey before his maddening grief gets the best of him.
THE MOTEL AND LOBBY
Reflects a roasomewhat deserted, roadside stop that is a little worse for wear.
THE LOBBY SIDE OF THE CHECK IN WINDOW
THE FRONT OFFICE INTERIOR
OFFICE DETAILS
It is the little touches that make a design complete
CLOCKS AND INDIAN MOTIFS
There are a variety of clocks throughout the movie to help create the idea of unending time.

Because the Indian culture is part of who these people are, I attempted to have small reminders in each interior space.
MOTEL KEYS
It was important to have almost all the keys present, to help enforce that this motel was mostly vacant.
