Abraham is a short film created by Ryan Sellick, a satirical modern take on the story of Abraham

Satirical Short Film – 2014


This was my Advanced Narrative Film Class Final Project in Grad School. This short film was shot in RAW format using a Black Magic Cinema Camera, and edited using a round-trip process between AVID Media Composer and DaVinci Resolve. I had no prior knowledge or experience with this camera or software.

The film was intended to be a satirical modern approach to the story of Abraham (Genesis 22), inspired in part by the absurdist, deadpan humor of Louis CK.
