After being sucked into a kingdom built from trash, Gary must face his greatest fears to save his daughter's life.
One Man’s Trash is a story about sustainability; the goal of the film is to show people that recycling can also be an art form. The story follows a man who is oblivious both to how wasteful he is and to how his lifestyle is affecting future generations. When he is suddenly pulled into and underground palace made of garbage he is forced to reevaluate his choices under the judgment of the queen. In order to learn from his mistakes the man must save his daughter from drowning in the trash he has produced, it is only then that he is ready to return to the real world.
The set itself tells a story, a palace throne room made from trash. The entire room is created with recycled materials including cardboard, newspaper, trash bags, bottles and tins. The goal of this film is to show that recycling doesn’t have to be boring and tedious, it can be creative and artistic. The palace and props are meant to make people look twice, created in such a way that at first glance they look like real things, made of wood and fabric, but once you look closer you realize that they are made of things we throw out everyday. After viewing this film I hope for the audience to think twice about throwing things in the garbage, I want them to be able to look at trash not for what it is, but for what it can become. The donations will be going to raw film stock and processing, raw materials like glue and staples, as well as food for the crew.

The actual building of the set will be time consuming and difficult but with the help of the art department I am confident we can get it done!
