Alexander Rohr, writer
Project: “A Time to Search”

A Time to Search is an animation project in memory of my younger brother who died in a hiking accident. The series will consist of seven episodes which detail the first 24 hours we found out my brother was missing. It will be produced with those people in mind who are in desperate circumstances or who have suffered inexplicable loss. While tragedy cannot always be explained, I firmly believe hope can be found if we search for it with faith. This search for hope is the foundation of my project, and I am proud to present a read-through of the screenplay for the first episode in the series.
