Worth Watching: Thought-Provoking Sci-Fi Short 'Lost Memories'
"What do you have left in this digital era that is no longer?" This is a must watch, no question. It's only two minutes long and it's moving and emotional and makes you think, with just a few lines of well-written voiceover. FS reader Ronny, who also tipped us on that fascinating NASA sci-fi short Robbie, linked me to this other short, titled Lost Memories. It's made by French filmmaker Francois Ferracci and addresses that interesting dilemma mentioned in the quote at the beginning regarding how this world is progressing into the digital realm. It's set in Paris, year 2020, beyond that it's best to jump in. Don't skip this, it's good!
From the Vimeo page for Francois Ferracci's Lost Memories it introduces: Paris, 2020. A beautiful couple, a city over-saturated by holograms and digital stream. A polaroid camera. Tomorrow will never be the same. This short was written, directed and post-produced by Ferracci, who now lives in Toronto. The two actors seen in this are Luka Kellou and Magali Heu, with music by Alexandre Fortuit. If anyone is interested in more information on how he added and created the visual effects, here's a behind-the-scenes video. There's also an interview with Ferracci about Lost Memories over on One Small Window. Thoughts?
