Oneironaut


BRIEF

The brief consisted of creating a short-film in a group project including the multimedia class. The theme was focused on desolation. Due to corona a large groups were not advised thus each individual student had to create their own short approximately 2-3 minutes long, all which part of one big narrative.

PROBLEM STATEMENT



As millennial final year students stuck in lockdown, the year has been cut short of social interaction and instead been replaced by the ever-present phones in our pocket. Connected socially and raised by the Internet but this year, 2020 –changed everything.

As corona infection increases, the sense of freedom seems further and further way from reality. Many are left with their thoughts and imagination. Leading to a world where dreams and reality have merged, leaving a blurred line of distinction, shown through Olive's perceptive.

SOLUTION



The Desolation Diaries, are an anthological collect of diary entries from twelve multimedia design students. The central theme serves to be human connection, ironically complemented by lack of human contact. These twelve students document their personal feelings and range of rollercoaster emotions which govern our human experience. The Desolation Diaries explore themes of isolation or lack there of within an international shut down, with desolation being the key-word to the film. The viewer will experience a similar range of emotions throughout the film and get a small taste of what life has been like for a generation born into a globalised community that depends on social interaction and connection.

Angelina's short explores the psychological effects of lockdown during the Corona virus pandemic has on someone and their reality as well as their subconscious. This is shown ¨through the dreamy and hazy like effect while confusing the audience by showing an individual's path in isolation. The word Oneironaut stands for someone that has the ability to travel their dreams, lucid dreaming to a extemt. Therefore the short explores a so called dream traveler, an Oneironaut.
