Close to Me: The Birthday
Writing, Direction, Production Design: Karen Weber
Editing, Sound Design: Justin Weber
A spunky short about the gift of friendship between two women, The Birthday playfully calls out the way girls often act apologetic or feel what they offer is not “good enough…” Composed entirely of extreme close ups, it’s all about amplifying the subtleties, elevating the details, and declaring the little moments that mean the world.
