I actually have a fun story from the day we where recording. :P The scene where she goes bananas on the door... I was the guy standing on the other side, holding the door still with all my strength. I didn't mind standing a little in the the corridor. But as the actress where screaming like mental (as you heard in the film), several people at the hospital heard the screaming and went looking, what is she screaming for? :confused: Of course all they saw was a crazy guy (me) holding the door so she couldn't get out! As they didn't know we where filming, some went like crazy all over the place thinking I where trying to kill the actress or something. :doh: I couldn't tell them because the camera where rolling and the mice would catch my voice. :XD: Eventually I where able to tell them that we where actually filming, before one of them called the police xD



We have been working on this about a ½ year, mainly we have been 5 people following the project. Been a rather large production for such a short film =P

They are talking Norwegian but I think there is no reason to translate. It wont be the reason if you don't get it, but if you wonder about the ending... don't ask me :P

Directed by Eivind Solberg, he also wrote the script.
I've been the producer and done all the colours and VFX.
Behind the camera where Petter Olsen
Your mic girl was Åshild Samseth
Music by Thortrillion Tomsborg
Edited by Stine Carlsen


For those of you who wonder about the ending, here is the director's thoughts.

### The director's thoughts ###
She had to take her own life in order to wake up. By puling the cable she will some how kill herself in the current world and then be able to wake up in the real world. Only reason she is holding her child is to mentally overcome the challenge. So the ending is that she wakes up.

Anyway, that's just one way to look at it.
Enjoy, do comment if you like! :w00t!:

##### Update #####
I just received a DD! O_O
This is WONDERFUL!!!! :D
I Love your comments! So don't be shy and tell the world what you think! ^^ :w00t: I will try to reply you all! :D

So..now I will comment on this wonderful piece of art:) I'm sorry I haven't done this earlier. I had to make sure that I fave this that I can do this now:)

I really like this short film. It's so emotional. I watched it a few times, because I think it's so great and affecting. The idea is great and it's so well executed. The music absolutely fits to the scenes. I think it's nice and there's enough room for everybodys own interpretation. I don't know how to say better how much and what in detail I like. But it's amazing :nod: =)

Watched it a few times? You really know how to enjoy a short film! ^_^

I'm really glad you enjoyed it, so awesome to hear you thoughts! :eager: :D

It's been a lot of work, think we used 5 months on this production, but everybody was doing it beside school. Take so much time to produce things like this.

But I'm just done with a new project, this time a 1 1/2 month school project. It's been a rush production, making a 5 minute short film at that amount of time is really challenging! O_O

Anyway, I'm really pleased with the result, we're working on translating it these days so it will be online any time soon! :w00t:

Once again, thanks for you kind reply. :iconbowplz:

@02:22I also really like the lighting. I think at the beginning of this shot it highlights moves your eye to the girl, then as the woman moves into spotlights her well so your attention is kept on her and what she's doing.

The film is beautiful. I love the music. Well done!

@04:24that was pretty kul, im also studying film, and doing a short, its a bit longer than urs. were also using a couple of scenes with effects in a mirror, howd you do the fading of the actress in the mirror, green screeneed it or used sumink diferent?

No use of green screen or any special stuff while we where filming. It's all set up as it appears in the film. But later edited in After Effects, to create the fade away effect. If you want to know exactly how it's done send me a note.
