CAPRI HOTEL

A crowd, corrupted by the digital tool that created it, is having a good time on a building's rooftop. Each individual who composes it is in fact an iteration of a single 3D model. These characters evolve within temporal parentheses which, through an accumulation effect, gives the illusion of a mass which would have a semblance of humanity.
A benevolent narrator tells us their story in the form of an original musical composition by Thibault Picard.

This short film is a reinterpretation of a mythical scene from Mikhaïl Kalatasov's film Soy Cuba.
Initially conceived as a study object, Capri Hotel has become an original work of Graphset, exploring the possibilities of digital tools when it comes to questions of staging, narration and aesthetics.
