INKSIDE FonkyPoulp

Oro is falling from the sky into a desert world...
All around him, dark shapes are raising from everywhere and are turning into supernatural creatures and into samurais. A terrible fight is about to begin between the warriors and the creatures that look like diabolical octopuses.
And then the dark shapes are becoming brightly colored creatures, psychedelic octopuses that are moving restlessly and excitedly, but then menacingly.

As if totally indifferent to what happens around him, Oro is rambling into this chaotic background, from scenes of fear to scenes of contemplation .
Can he get out of here ?
Are these strange octopuses really a threat ?

What if Oro was himself the creator of this world ?

Director Statement

Stephane Chung origins are both occidental and asian.
His parents came from China and Stephane was born and raised in France.

Inkside/ Fonky Poulp's subject is inspired by this mixed education.

Oro, the main character of the movie, is the witness of what he created by mistake : images, shapes and emotions, his imagination is taking life and he tries to control it at the end.

The movie is the purpose to show an explosion of feelings, emotions and energy, the materials give organisation to the chaos.

Calligraphy's way of working is very similar, it is a different way of thinking than regular drawing with pen and paper.
The movement of the pencil and the mind are relying on the flow of the movements which gives birth to the drawing.

Inkside is based on this feeling.

The intention is to give life to this explosion of creativity.
To keep this energy there are no dialogues.
The spectator dive into the universe of the movie and the meaning comes at the end of the movie.
