Here I'm playing with the idea of creating a hauntological film. Hauntology encompasses the ideas of "the past inside the present", bordering between nostalgia and an enigmatic remoteness of real or made up pasts.
Heavily influenced by the British music label Ghost Box (ghostbox.co.uk/, who play along similar chords) I wanted to explore the concepts behind Hauntology and what I personally consider to be artificial memory, through a physical Ghost Box (which in reality was an old Akai Tape recorder) and also the look of the film itself, hence the exagerrated sixties/seventies feel in the footage (which I actually shot digitally with a Canon 550D), and using the penguin-esque design and pallette, which is a nod to both Ghost Box but also the overall design aesthetics from the past. In addition, analog technology plays a large role in the Hauntological canon as well, like the use of the Cathode Ray- Oscilloscope.
I wanted the music to be both haunting and modernistic, bridging between Sixties Sci-Fi soundtracks and Modernistic music. The background voice is gathered from an old NRK news archive about Life during the sixties, featuring topics like time, death and so on...
