All the Stories

"An individual is much more than just a person, it’s all the stories that go with that person."

We allow the invisible to become visible and show the individuality of a person by means of an impressive composition, whereby the human takes center stage, not just in terms of content but also spatially. Within a real stage set made up of materials such as wood, silk, water and glass, we depict their personal stories, memories, thoughts and desires, using metaphorical objects. We thereby enable the viewer significant room for interpretation and the possibility to personally identify with the production.

Instead of detachment, the viewer experiences a personal closeness. The different levels of reality start to move, images and times shift. The music further underpins the picture and gives it added intensity on an auditory level. The colors lend the film a very sophisticated look and feel and a powerful depth.

"The past, present and the future merge with each other in a magical way – reality and fantasy exist in parallel."

"Through the combination of colors, shapes and materials, the whole graphical image is seemingly progressive and avant-garde."
