Mr. Nobody - scene recreation

 

 

Mr_nobody_ver3_xxlg

 

We are trying to recreate a scene from Mr. Nobody, directed by Jaco Van Dormael, in 16mm film stock for a cinematography course in Brooklyn College. This sequence is incredible as it contains one of the most advanced effects in cinema history, yet it is barely noticeable.

Nemo wakes up with Elise at his side and then goes to the bathroom. There’s nothing very complex about that, but the camera movements in this scene are amazing and the most cinematographically inventive ever seen. We literally dive through the mirror as this scene unfolds in the very beginning of the film.

Recreating it in 16mm footage is sure to give it a very special look that will benefit the scene greatly.

Allocation of funds

 

Only those who have contributed to the making of this movie (either financially or technically)  will be able to see the finished product.

We are building the set right now and we're looking for $1000 to finish it. On top of that we are working with the 16mm Fujifilm stock which is expensive to process and digitalize. 

Reasons to donate: If you love Mr. Nobody as much as we do and if you're curious about the results of the experiments; If you want to help young filmmakers in need of money – but more than that, in need of an audience and partners. If you want to see the last Fujifilm rolls ever produced used wisely.

 Any amount helps, please don’t hesistate!
