Scenes open and we are transported into them via sound and mood. First, a parked vintage automobile, shot from the side. Then, from the air, a city at night shot through a partly cloudy sky. Then, a hallway, isolated and deserted. Next, we view an old residence at the end of a darkened alley.
One scene after another is presented, sans people. Evoking a mood of isolation, each place seems to communicate the distinct impression of recent habitation or of an action executed earlier in time.
The cinematographer guides us into each segment and we are riveted. Each movement shifts with the transposition of the music’s phrasing - each in-synch with the other. Sky clouds, earth clouds, deserted boats and structures, a curtain blowing in the wind – perhaps forecasting a future on earth, without human interference?
Without knowing why, we watch and listen from beginning until end. It is all we can do. The images are quietly insistent.Cinematographer, Tim Sessler, made this impressive film. Please visit his website for more information – and to view more of his work.
