NORTHERN LIGHTS (2013)

Synopsis

Inspired by the stark contrast of light and dark, we set out to explore this concept physically and emotionally. Through the fantasy genre our imaginations were sparked while we experimented with light throughout our story.


An interesting aspect is how we managed to breathe life into an inanimate object. An Orb able to control its own light allowed us to convey a sense of personality and unique communication. By adding a playful element, we have visually emphasized that it is more than just a torch -- it is a living entity. Through the character and object interactions we set out to blur the boundaries of their roles of "guide" and "lost soul" to suggest that actually both the Man and Orb need each other to find something.

Girl - Sarah Calmus

 

For our mysterious girl, we wanted her to have an otherworldly vibe about her so the audience questions if she is human or not.
