“Sometimes it’s the Great Silence of Outer Space”


“Sometimes it’s the Great
Silence of Outer Space”
 
Sometimes it’s the Great Silence of Outer Space is a short visual novel (3’10”)
I made last year. I wrote a short story (script) based upon the script of Ingmar Berg
man’s 'Scenes from a Marriage'. This short film functions as an visual novel/prose.

The film is build upon of found footage material a narrator (voice-over)
tells the story. This film is a first attempt to combine
photography and/or film material with written text, and make visual poetry or a prose. 

In t
he near future I will experiment more with this approach as apart of my work.

Drago Jančar's Northern Lights will form the starting point for a next work.
More information will follow later on.
