the origin of a story resides in the capacity of observation. I OFTEN GET TRIGGERED WHEN I COME ACROSS AN UNUSUAL SITUATION, CHARACTER OR PERSPECTIVE. DURING THE WRITING PROCES I JUST FOCUS ON BUILDING A RECOGNISABLE FLOW OF EMOTIONS.  


LIFE WITHOUT END

transmedia, non fiction

We spend the largest part of our lives searching for happiness. While doing this we’re constantly planning our future. But if suddenly we would hear that we don’t have much longer to live, our attitude would radically change. Not the future, but the here and now would become important. LIFE WITHOUT END is a visual poem written with the creative contribution of people who suffer a life-threatening disease. The project consists of a documentary and an interactive platform.
