Grounded was shot for the Santa Barbara International Film Festival 10-10-10 Film Competition.

In fact 10 filmmakers and 10 screenwriters were chosen based on their previous work and got paired.

The directors had to turn the screenplay into a 10min short film within 10 days which includes casting, pre production, production, and post production.


Grounded won the competition and I got the award for best director.

It was the first time that a UCSB student won the competition



Year of production: 2015
