Tom Misch & Yussef Dayes 'What Kinda Music' by Douglas Bernardt
Paranoia takes hold in Douglas Bernardt's thrilling vision for Tom Misch & Yussef Dayes.
Traversing an subway station in Kiev, the lead character - played by Demian Piatakov - snaps his neck back and forth, trying to catch a glimpse of the eyes trained on him. Everyday people morph into threatening figures as they glare and gossip, and all Piatakov can do is keep walking.
Moments later, Piatakov is running through a vast forest, representing his confused emotions and the labyrinth that is his mind. Inside this world, he has a chance to pause and consider his surroundings, a juxtaposition to the dark city and its cacophony of noise and violence.
DoP Adolpho Veloso contrasts the two locations through considered lighting and composition: the forest shots utilise slow zooms and breathtaking natural lighting, whilst the train has pulsing artificial light and lots of close-ups. A judicious use of VFX add a huge amount of production value to the project, and help create the haunting and ethereal world inside the character's mind.
