A soldier on a critical mission finds that his fate converges with the fate of the enemy as they second-guess each other's intentions.

The film 'Convergence' is based on a short poem by the same author. The poem details the tentative state of a lone soldier on a mission. The film builds on this idea and follows the soldier from his base to the intersection with the enemy.
I used my city's natural reserve areas to stand in for a remote war-torn region.
To make this film, I used a Panasonic G7 camera.
My primary lens was the Panasonic kit lens 14-42 mm 1:3.5-5.6.
I also used the Panasonic 45-200 1:4-5.6 for long shots.
I recorded sound on a Rode M3 microphone and a Rode VideoMic Rycote. The tracks in the final cut were recorded exclusively on the VideoMic Rycote microphone. Even though the M3 microphone had a quieter baseline, the portability of the Rycote and the stereo sound quality made it the go-to microphone.
