The Hearts of Age is a short film made in 1934 by Orson Welles. He plays death, and pretty much stalks an old woman until the end, in which she dies. I was thinking about how I would like to make a movie in which an abstract concept is personified. One friend told me to personify love, another- greed. I think greed might be more difficult, but also more interesting. What is greed like? What does greed do, where does greed lurk? But the biggest question of all: what problem could greed have that would be worthy of a film?
