Shortmovie: Avid Wilsons „Life as an Indepentent Astronaut“


(Vimeo Direktastronaut, via Motionographer)

Netter Kurzfilm von Avid Wilson, der grade auf dem F5-Filmfestival gezeigt wurde (das nix mit den Fünf Filmfreunden zu tun hat).

I didn’t want to start with a blank piece of paper on this one. In fact, I decided to step away from my desk completely and start with some fabric, card, scissors and glue, and I made this space suit. The process of doing and making is very therapeutic for me. Over the few days that it took me to create the suit, I developed the character of who lived inside it. Developing the script and costume side-by-side made a lot of sense to me, and was refreshing to start from a different angle. Ultimately, the life of John Barlow, our Independent Astronaut revolves around the importance of inner peace and finding acceptance.
