In his first short film, Director Matt Palmer plays a sound man who ventures into an empty cave to record the trickling sounds of the water that runs underground. As he descends further into the depths of the cave, it suddenly becomes clear that he might not be alone.
A mere 6 minutes long, “Daylight Hole” follows a short, to-the-point storyline. Palmer has mastered the art of building suspense using little other than rhythm. As the sound man works his way further underground, the shots shorten and the underlying beat of the film develops, ultimately compounding towards the final climax.
