Opus 73

An audiovisual "Self-portrait", the author's attempt to explore his own mind and reflect how he experiences his particular world.

"A fun short with an interesting underlying concept. The film plays on the combination and interrelationship of imagery and music while also unveiling a personal and intimate world. The edit also being part of an orchestrated experience is very playful and dynamic.[...] This short manages to transmit quite well a sense of the personality and life of the filmmaker including his interests and surroundings."
