Promo video for "Cinema Perpetuum Mobile" film festival.
DP Vasily Tsybulko. Editor Robert Seneko

The Story
I got involved in the project at the postproduction stage. By the time the shooting was over. There was a rough cut version, which is not good enough for the creators.
The video was filmed in improvisational manner, so it never had a script.

On the original video was captured Soviet film projector ...
A girl who pedals a bicycle barefoot ...
And the combination of all with the flashing torch.
My task was to re-edit in somehow, maybe add some captions.
The first goal – to connect the image with the perpetual motion machine to beat the festival name.

I took a fragment of the shot with bike gear and looped it.
Color correction in the fiery yellow gave similarity to da Vinci drawings, associations with parchment, splinter light, alchemy.
Yellow shots of the engine began to alternate with bluish shots of a film projector.
It expanded visual space, having emphasized that we consider at least two remote objects.
The audio track consists of sound recorded while shooting: the noise of chains and the projector.

There was no titles in the original scenario. However, they serve as a link, which gave the meaning to the video.
