Supersad

April 5, 2018

A tragic love story situated in virtuality and driven by virality, employing parallel and layered visual narratives. This digitally generated film is an exploration of VR aesthetics and merges slit-scan and lenticular photography with Edvard Munch’s The Scream.

Once upon a time on a deserted parking lot, in a galaxy far far away, everything turns rainbow, rainbow, and rainbow…

The soundtrack is a mashup of Erik Satie’s Trois Gnossiennes No 2. (1893) and played samples of A Town With An Ocean View from the soundtrack of Kiki’s Delivery Service (Studio Ghibli, Hayao Miyazaki, 1989) by Joe Hisaishi (1989)

This a non-VR film created with VR tools.

Supersad(e)

Supersad(e) iterations merge slit-scan and lenticular photography aesthetics with Edvard Munch’s The Scream.

The parallel and layered visual narratives are a response to the modern audience’s increased bandwidth to process several storylines and point of views simultaneously. This is reminiscent of the animated GIF and GIF sets.
