To the flame is a short film written, directed and produced by Geri Ulrey with editing by Tina Nguyen and cinematography by Jonathan Pope. The line producer was Alexandra Spector and Steven Hudosh was the production designer.
To the flame explores the connection, or really lack of connection, found in the physical and emotional relationship of Zoe and Paul. The film focuses on that turning point in a relationship when disconnect is revealed.
Geri won a Creative and Research Grant from California State University, Northridge and a Panavision Emerging Filmmaker Grant in order to finance the film.
