Following up Not Human Anymore (photoset at this [link] ), entretemps develops an alternate "story" in the same place.

While my photo-stories often have a linear narrative approach, this movie is more conceptual and closer to some live theatre performances I've seen. There's a deliberate lack of voiceover or explicative texts. My purpose is to let you immerse into its mood and come up with your own story and feelings about it.

My next short movie will be a narrative one.

Technical info Since I'm sure some people will ask about it: this is a zero-budget short movie which took roughly two hours to shoot. Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark II + old manual M42 lenses. Light: A reflector but no additional light. Postprocessing: Serif Movie Plus, X3, AVI Synth scripts, Virtual Dub, Photoshop. This is quite cost-effective but way more complicated than using After effects or Premiere. No stock footage, I've shot everything. Please, no more questions on technical aspects.

I love the effect with the capes/sheets. That was most memorable for me.

Thank you :) It was my second film and more of a test, maybe I should rework on it one day!

Anyway, this was inspired by this amazing clip [link] (see at 3:01)

This was the first movie of yours I'd seen; I have continued to watch the other movies in your gallery and all of them have amazed me. They are so surreal, and I like that. I also like that you do not give your ideas as to what the story means, you leave that up to the viewer. Excellent work! =)

@01:00I :heart: the music. It's, to me, reminding of the hauntingly achingly silence that seems to seep out from the movie even with the sound. Love the person.

@01:57Where the smokes falling all around I found it lasted 20 sec to long. apart from that I really did enjoyed viewing this, I love small creative films like this you get a taste of what goes on in another artists head.

Gorgeous, huge fan of your work by the way.
