No. 3: Myth

Filmmaking in the Age of Social Distancing

The following films were created for The Sequestered: No. 3 off the prompt
Filmmakers were given 7 days to write, film and edit their work.

See past editions of The Sequestered here, or sign up for our newsletter and contribute to the current edition.


-All films must be between 2 minutes – 5 minutes in length (if you’re adding titles, keep them under 15 seconds)
– The prompt must be used as an integral part of the film. It can be represented literally, in dialogue, metaphorically, however you see fit!
– All films must be shot on a phone. You can edit however and with whatever you like, but no fancy cameras!
– All films must use one of the filmmaker’s “shelter in place” / quarantine for the location.
