After the End

After the End is a five minute operatic film about an
amnesiac ghost searching for his identity through the scattered debris
of a post-apocalyptic landscape.  The live action footage of the main
character will be inserted into a digital collage-art world made up of
image samples from photographs, existing films and textural materials.
 The corresponding music will also be composed of various samples.  My
goal for the project is to create meta-world which examines issues of
defining self and history in an environment filled with massive
amounts of shifting and scattered information.
