Once again I've made a film that deals with time, now represented by two old handmade toys and a 'divine' hand. After this intro follows Nature Through Urban Life - cultivated nature elements with urban soundscapes. The sound is as usual a very important component.
We are all travelers. Through space and time, from life to death - and beyond. Everything is movement, transitions, rhythm, patterns. So much in life consists of repetition, variations on a theme, mixed by life itself; it's all very subtle but now and then we become aware of it - Déjà vu!
Time Is Movement | Movement Is Change | Change Is Time.
A kind of war drama that takes place mostly within the viewers head. A few stills, sound effects and a soundscape along with some video effects and a couple of old portraits in b/w - and of course, blended with different memories from the viewers. That's all.
Electronica recorded and edited at Studio Monolith.
This short film from Pretto film deals with tracks of time and memories and our deepest wish to be remembered by those who will survive us. The structure and the mood in the film is closely connected to the music by Michael Nyman and one of the soundtracks from The Piano, directed by Jane Campion in 1993, The Embrace/Lost and Found and also my contribution to The Michael Nyman Competition, August 2009.
One Way Elevator is a journey from the sky down to earth. What I had in mind when making this film was the God Indras daughter and the journey she did down to earth in the play of August Strindberg, A Dream Play. The whole film is a vertical journey and consists only of stills, except for a short video intro. We see a blue sky, hear the elevators engine and down it goes, down through buildings, places and graffiti. Finally, we see some people and hear the sound of an elevator door. Where are we?
Urban life - we take a short trip with the underground, take a look at a skyline, then at a board with train arrivals. All this ending up with a question - Will I dream? Dream of what? When? In the afterlife? I don't know.
