7Ds

The question is asked and the answer is totally out of touch with reality. 7DS is a VR short film about the desire for more and the human need for excess: the seven deadly sins. It is this little voice inside us that we refuse to see. 4m30 minutes that allow us to think and ask ourselves the question: Which deadly sin(s) am I guilty of?

Besik (The Cradle)

The Cradle cinematic VR is a tragicomedy of absurd re-creating the very moment when a baby sees itself in a mirror. That moment gives thefirst and the most powerful experience of self-representation. The action takes place in surrealistic eastern cityscape filled by uncompleted portraits of citizens. There is a cradle with baby in the center of the scene. Parents stay at the cradle, trying to guess: Whom does baby look like? Mom says: He looks like me! Dad says: No, he takes after me! Aunt says: No, he looks like his Aunt! Uncle says: He is dead ringer of his Uncle! The Cradle cinematic VR is a portrait of personality which will remain forever unfinished.

I -3 Ricardo

"I love Ricardo" is an experimental VR created from images of reflections, exposed light shots, rain, details in containers and smooth surfaces mixed with a large amount of experimental programming code both in the generative realms and in After Effects Expressions . It took around seven months to be created. The excellent soundtrack was one of the milestones of the idea because "Cariñito Dub" impressed me from the beginning. This short film was not made with the 360 VR programs, but observing and exploiting the nature of how the image is distorted today when we digitize these video files. I V3 Ricardo seeks to express a deep love for a significant individual and pretends to have a specific meaning about interpersonal relationships. This short film was made in 2017. The original footage was captured with a DSRL camera and a sports camera.

She even forgets the gallery and freezes like a Stone. At the time, a gallery employee notices Asfur crossing the red line. And warns her uncomprimoingly. This warning startles Asfur and makes her live all pain, harm and fears again for while.
