He then is dropped right back into that classroom, still stuck in the same seat he was in before. He then draws his attention to a girl sitting next to him. She turns around and gives a small smile. He then turns back towards the teacher and is transported back into his vivid imagination where he is located in a lounge sitting with someone. He is just staring at this individual using a laptop. The person then takes a sip of their drink, puts it down on the table and stares right into his eyes. She is the same girl from the classroom he was staring at. Daniel & the girl walk enters an elevator together and right when the door closes, she grabs his hand.

Given the gravity of what each of them needs to say, Will I Say So, is a testament to the power of trust, honesty, and the potency of radical love and acceptance.

  • Film Title DroidLove

  • Category Narrative

  • School / Date Completed SUNY Buffalo State College, Completed February 15th, 2019

  • Written and Directed by Brayton Lydell Produced by Skyler Gore

  • H.264, Digital (Canon T4i)

  • A mechanic learns the importance of personality and companionship over progress when he disassembles his only friend. Set in a distant universe, DroidLove is a heartwarming story about valuing those in your life that love you, and the dangers of putting your work above them. The costumes, set, props, and droid puppets are entirely original work by Production Designer Cameron Lydell. He turned a cramped attic into a science-fiction workshop and random bits of PVC and computer parts into the lovable Dot, and we owe him the credit for creating the world of our film. Special thanks to everyone that supported us along the way, and a special shoutout to the composer of our original score, Alistair Hobson. We hope you enjoy this film as much as we enjoyed making it!
