Short summary

At the worst point of his life, a young man contemplates his self worth. Comprised of just one shot, "Ascent" is about facing your demons through self discovery.

The entire film is captured in one locked down shot. The camera never moves, and the film never cuts.

Director Alex Withrow and actor Jonathan Scott Parker shot the long take 8 times over the course of one night. The final take used in the movie is take 7.

The gun used in the film is a real gun, though it was not loaded while filming.
