Short Film: MIRRORS, 3min., Germany, Music Video

041dec6c2e posterThe music video for “Mirrors” unites the extraordinary sound of composer and multi-instrumentalist Julian Scherle with the magic, mysticism and magnitude of Iceland’s nature. Scherle’s cineastic sound, accompanied by alternating visual structures and breathtaking landscapes, evokes a wealth of overflowing emotions within the viewer. Fantastic Iceland shots and fascinating visual effects create mesmerizing, dream-like sequences. The video was produced by Cologne-based agency GROSSE8 and filmed under the direction of Manfred Borsch. “It’s about chaos; about ugliness transforming itself into something positive,“ says Borsch. “Stress and anxiety dissolve through isolation, clearing the view for the beauty of everyday things.”

Julian, aka Són, is a German-raised, Los Angeles-based composer, music producer, multi-instrumentalist and artist. Scherle’s music has been featured on high profile and critically acclaimed projects such as “American Horror Story” and “Scream”. He helped shape the score of the hit show “Mr. Robot”, which won an Emmy for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series in 2016.

Són’s first release, “Rituals” was created over the course of 2016 and 2017 and combines organic electronica with driving rock elements. This work conceptually reflects an exploration of modern day rituals and their influence on mankind. After the completion of Rituals, Scherle passed along the concept to five befriended directors to visually explore this topic and gain different perspectives as a collective.

In mathematics, plus minus indicates a choice of exactly two possible values, one of which is the negation of the other.
This is my interpretation of a couple trying to survive the insurmountable differences between them.

Short Film: LAND OF MINE, 4min., Germany, Experimental

Landofmine poster

“Man must rise above the earth – to the top of the atmosphere and beyond – for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.” (Socrates)

LAND OF MINE is an experimental macro short which is made with acrylic paint and ink on paper. The idea was to recreate the unique look on planet earth from space which sometimes rather appears like an abstract piece of art than a real photo. From far away, the surface of our planet shows the beauty of it’s landscapes, coasts and the sea in perfect order. It’s highly expressive visual aesthetics and it’s contextual narrative inspired me to create an artistic interpretation of what I’ll never see with my own eyes.
It’s just flowing colors on drawing paper, but it’s there, it’s massive and it’s real: the land of mine.
