Alone - a Visual Poem | Video Production Diary | 9 Seconds Production

In this visual poem, we take a closer look at being alone
Everyone goes through rough patches in life where things just don't seem to go their way. Everyone feels disconnected from themselves sometimes and that's okay. It doesn't mean they're broken or defective in some way; it just means they're human.
"Video production frequently faces the challenge of unlimited desires with limited time and resources. This convoluted memory began with secretly filming on private property, only to be chased away. We later discovered that with over 70 shots and no intimidating assistant director, it was impossible to complete in one day. We ultimately decided to freestyle shoot until midnight, making it one of the few memorable productions.
"We set out to make a dance film guided by voiceover, but ended up creating an art film instead.
Art is a concept, and the film is meant to convey its own meaning. It is up to the viewer to experience it for themselves.
Only when the filmmaker incorporates their personal viewpoint and becomes a sort of philosopher do they emerge as an artist, and cinema becomes an art.
"This film has a strong visual style and perhaps a hint of youthful recklessness. It was our first collaboration and also our first work as a team. I could continue, but we will save some time and watch the film together instead. - 9 Seconds Production"
