Film and Television Major Devon White's short film, The Age of Quarantine, was selected "Best Film" in VTIFF's Shelter in Place Showcase Spring 2020
The Age of Quarantine is a short film I directed in Spring 2020. I made the film to show my personal experience dealing with the pandemic, especially in the early phases. I really enjoyed making this film as it serves as a snippet of what life looked like back when COVID-19 first took us all by surprise. I decided to do a voice-over monologue to make the film feel like it were just taken out of my diary. I was extremely excited to find out that I won Best Film and VTIFF for this short, and I am extremely thankful to the UVM FTS program for teaching me the skills I need to become a successful filmmaker!

My video is about people in my life that I am in contact with since self-quarantine. I decided to use animation because I had the materials to do it and I wanted to explore the medium. I really enjoyed making the end part. I used one sound clip that I found on YouTube of bats calling each other. I really like how abstract it was but I don't think anyone would have picked up on what it is. I really like the experimental documentary format. There are so many possibilities and I would love to work on more. Jess Armstrong ‘21, FTS 141, Spring 2020
