About the project
LOCKLINEA surreal silent short film about a dead man who wakes up in purgatory. He needs to go trough the 5 stages of grief before he can move on.

Requiem is a short film that borrows from the surrealism as well as from the old silent films. It's a film without dialogue that tells a story just with visuals, acting and music. 

Our main character wakes up in a desert like area, he does not know where he is, his clothes are bloody his skin is dry. He starts walking hoping to see a sign of life and hoping to ever see his wife and family again. While walking he encounters surreal scenarios and starts hallucinating. We see how the man breaks down on his way to the acceptance of his death.



Being a "one-man-crew" certainly is cheaper then paying 30 people to do everything for you, but it certainly is not free. All the costs that go into shooting are coming out of my own pocket, and while I certainly don't intend to make profit of the film, It would be nice to have all the costs covered so I can be sure that the film can be made without budget problems.

For instance, I will record almost everything for the soundtrack but for this film I want to do something special and write something for an string-quartet + soprano, which is going to cost something.
There are also alot of costs in the props like a grammophone, a phonecell. For the set and driving to and from the set.

Quote that inspired the maker

A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.
Stanley Kubrick
