My graduation film in University of Westminster! Music by the talented Li Cheong : http://licheong.com/
Narrative is a tool that can be used to make us feel empathy, and its power is based on our ability to recognise patterns. This film tries to challenge the viewer’s expectations firstly, by reforming the 3d elements of the image throughout the film and secondly, by showing two equally important events simultaneously. Therefore, our pattern recognition mechanism (schemata) is tested and the narrative of the film becomes less important. At the end, the viewer is asked to react emotionally to the film process itself.
