THE BIRTHDAY is a study of modern narrative visual forms.


A short film which will be realized in the classical two-dimensional cinemascope versus a virtual reality experience in 360°. We will explore the limitations and peculiarities of the two individual formats. Attention and distraction are central themes - both narrative and audio-visual. Form and content refer to each other. Where is the audience's attention in each media? How does the cinematic space unfold? Does the free choice of view in VR generate a different narrative then the cadrage allows in the two-dimensional version?
