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.
