“With Love,” a film created by Katy senior Faith Wheeler, was shot in one take with one camera angle, focusing on a conversation between two women around a piano. Wheeler said the film was inspired by a conversation she had in real life with her roommate, and she wanted to bring that realism and emotion to her film. “It’s about two girls songwriting around a piano, and they have two opposite views on relationships. That’s the humor in it,” Wheeler said. “They just have different perspectives.” One of the girls, according to Wheeler, takes a more pessimistic view, and the other is an optimist. Wheeler likes to think that she’s the optimistic girl in the film, having been inspired by her partner. “I like to think of myself as the hopeful one because I recently started dating someone that I feel inspired by,” Wheeler said. “That was the whole premise of the story.”
