Abstract: Nate can see the lifelines of people — the dying have a waning glow, and those with something left unfulfilled appear as grey to him. As a child, he witnessed his mother’s glow wither away, leaving only his father, who walked out on them, as his sole family member. Since then, the kindhearted, soft-spoken clairvoyant has made it a point to help the grey-and-dying arrive at comfort and fulfilment in their last days. He is their holding room, an agent to prepare them for their impending fate. When he meets Ruth, a free-spirited yet enigmatic young lady, he falls helplessly in love with her. She helps Nate come to terms with the questions of empathy and mortality he has struggled with his entire life, but a car accident threatens to take this all away from them. This report details the year-long process from conceptualisation to post-production. It seeks to address the various artistic and practical decisions in influencing the final product, while highlighting the challenges faced along the way and the solutions undertaken.
