Descent
BY
Stefan Otto

The film Descent was originally an attempt to combine photography and painting, or if you will, the analog with the digital. I’ve been working in similar ways in various photographic series before and it felt like a natural step to try it in a video.

We see a city in decay, anonymous, dark, with graffiti on ramshackled buildings. The camera sweeps past empty backyards when suddenly fogs of colour spreads like a malignant virus. The colour is threatening, like falling debris or the clouds after an explosion. A catastrophy just seconds away.

With the music we laborated extensively to find a working emotional state in the film. The aim was to balance between the sentimental montage and what Hitchcock referred to as a suspensed moment.
