Please read below the Synopsis, the Director Statement as well as some interesting notes about concept and Making of.
A MUSIC VIDEO FOR ADAM CARPET BY ANDREA CORSINI
A young girl is performing an unusual hide-and-seek ritual and starts wander through the empty rooms of a dark palace. As a sort of Alice she falls into another world, a black-limbo made of lights where she becomes another herself and face her madness.
At the end of the intro of the song there is a drum roll passage and than a kind of hanging moment.
That moment comes to me as a falling. I figure out a character who falls and disappear, and so it’s how the idea for the music video started.
ALICE IN LASERLAND
The concept of falling into another dimension comes clearly from the Alice character written by Lewis Carrol. The protagonist falls into a fantastic world where she become another herself and face with the dark side of her own person. She falls again into a tunnel though she come back in the real world.
Still Still is a story that goes through different levels where real world, fantastic world, past and present collides. In this multilevel narration i liked the idea to use the location settings as reflection of the condiction of the protagonist. The real world in the beginning is a empty palace with gloomy atmosphere, the fantastic world starts as a dark limbo with only primary colour and than it turns into a pop set with laser light and becomes a lysergic place full of colours. A separation that collapse in the ending where the lights and the atmosphere of the fantastic world contaminate the reality.
I wanted to make Still Still without using post-production special effects. Everything we see in the clip has been made for real on set using technique that now are generally in disuse.
The disappear in the room has been made with stop-and-rec and needs a lot of ciak, the falling into the tunnel has been made with rear-projection without using chroma-key and green-screen, as the playback scene with the laser light behind the girl, and concerning the relentless they are all made without the use of slow-motion framerate.
