Le Projecteur et La Silhouette

This is my third video made as a part of Group 312 Films. Group 312 Films is a not-for-profit, artists’ collective of digital video and film directors who create one short, per director, per month, every month, for six months. At each monthly meeting, we screen our projects for each other, drink, get feedback from the group and launch a new theme or topic for the following month.

The theme which inspired this video was “Ooh La La”. I tried to give the music a bit of classic French feel by sampling some old French recordings (public domain, of course) and also by sampling a harmonica tone for the solo accordion part.

The 16mm painted film which is projected includes many of the same textures I used in my short film “A Dream at The Edge of Land”.

The Capsula Mundi concept, from designers Anna Citelli and Raoul Bretzel, uses an egg-shaped burial pod made from biodegradable starch plastic as the coffin, in which the body is placed in a fetal position and buried under the ground. A tree (or tree seed) is then planted over the top of the pod, which will use the nutrients from the decomposing body as fertilizer for its growth. Although the Capsula Mundi is still a design concept, not an actual option for those planning for their funerals (in part because of regulations about burials and cemeteries), the designers hope that in the future, this type of burial will be allowed and “memory parks” full of trees will be planted. Instead of cemeteries full of headstones, the trees would serve as living memorials to the deceased.
