The Endings tells the stories of the moments surrounding the end of a romantic relationship, featuring actresses in the starring roles.

"When was the moment you knew it was over?"

The Endings is a book of short stories told through still photographs. Each story depicts the moments surrounding the end of a romantic relationship. Whether a breakup is a positive or negative thing, emotions always run high, and The Endings captures those key moments, following each character on her journey back to normalcy.

Each story in The Endings features an actress in the starring role because of their impressive ability to convey emotion. The actress is given her character's back-story and encouraged to take it as far as she feels she can. The performances are powerful and draw the viewer in, connecting everybody through something we can all understand: human emotion.

The Endings is a collaboration between photographer, Caitlin Cronenberg, and art director, Jessica Ennis. The two petite brunettes are incredibly dedicated to the completion of the project and sincerely appreciate your support!

----

It takes a lot, and requires the talents of many people to complete a single shoot for this book so the budget for The Endings will be spent on the production of the photo shoots. The goal is to produce a minimum of 15 stories for the final book, and each comes with a substantial price tag. Each shoot requires a location, props, hair and makeup, styling, lighting and crew. As much as the crew loves the project, there are only so many favours you can ask of people, and they are getting tired of being paid in cookies (well, some of them are).

The first shoot for The Endings is complete, and the next three subjects have been approached to star in the next three stories. Only with your support will the project be able to move forward, so please consider helping out!

  • Good question. Because some of the people we hope to shoot for this project have very hectic schedules, we anticipate that the process of shooting the book could take several years. Then on top of that there is the time it takes to publish a book. So we wanted to make sure you could have a reward instantly!
