Nocturne

Nocturne is a short film about the parallels between the world of dreams and the fictional reality of the digital computer. Following the romanticists' Nocturne as a musical basis, the video shows the transformation of the dancer's concious state through her sleep and dreams, to her sudden awakening.

Behind the Scenes

 

Hypnogram

 

The hypnogram shows the brain activity while an avarage night sleeping. I used it as the base pattern for the rhythm and dramaturgy of my project.

Process

 

Dramaturgy

The film was divided into 4 phases. From 'Being awake' in phase 1, to 'falling asleep in phase 2', dreaming more and more intense until the dream turns into a nightmare in phase 3 and the awakening at the begin of phase 4.
