An adventurous, open minded image seeker is on the search for colours, spaces, faces, weird angles and microscopic beauty. He doesn’t stop to think about whats possible, just does all it takes to hack reality, take shortcuts, cross the boundaries searching for truth on the inside of things.
With nothing but a cameraphone, he tries to delve deeper and deeper into the core, until he goes too far and loses track – can’t tell fiction and reality apart, mistaking the enormous for the insignificant.
Lost in his own labyrinth, he is taken to a mental ward, separated from reality. There, he is forced to face his inner demons and to fight his way back to life.
Meanwhile his love, desperate about losing him, decides to go and follow him to the abyss of atoms, into the core of minuscule reality, to get him back. She travels and asks the mysterious genius who is able to transcend the world of miniatures to send her down to search for his loved one.
How the quest will turn out – there is no telling, but one thing is sure: love will never give up, and never fail.
The film to be shot is planned as a relatively high-profile enterprise, for which a plan of shooting a specially transformed vehicle and travelling to a famous artist is also involved, as is the fabrication and procurement of different (professional or DIY), camera moving and rigging equipment, to be able to place the camera to extreme places and angles. Special lenses are also to be used. Lighting and crew costs make up the rest of the budget of this film to be shot in Hungary and Ukraine.
Being a student of the Hungarian Society of Cinematographers I will also ask the help and advice of film professionals and the use of film equipment if possible.
The idea of the film has emerged from impressions made by the music that serves as the soundtrack, which dictates the pace of this fast moving, surrealistic adventure.
It can be listened to in its entirety here:
The track is a relatively rare listening for the everyday ear, being a computer composition, created in 1991 on a Commodore Amiga 500, by the then-demoscene musician Zajos Suvak, friend of mine.
It contains 4 tracks, using 8 bit samples, the original file weighing only 86K!
The chaotic, dazzling and catchy melodies made me think of this story, that I wanted to make long ago, dreaming up matching imagery for it.
I think this setting and the superb imaging capabilities, the easy use and versatility of the long awaited (since the first leaked news more than 1.5 years ago) N8 would make this a very exciting venture that I’m very much looking forward to.
