  3. Short Film commissioned by Hamburg fashion brand Ethel Vaughn.

    ABOUT
     
    “As I stared up into the bright blue sky that was near the end of what felt like a trillion years, I was visited by a horrible sense of claustrophobia. A claustrophobia that sets in only when no space is great enough to contain you. Cause you have all this stuff inside you that refuses to leave. All those useless stupid things from the past.”
    ... a female voice whispers in the beginning of the film.
    Things talk relationships. This is the premise for THE GAME OF THINGS, Cristian Straub’s latest fashion short film for German fashion label Ethel Vaughn. A woman is haunted by her past, by things and moments she once shared with someone. As the film unfolds
    we get a grasp of the romantic relationship that is no more. The woman is determined to clean up her life - by setting all the "useless, stupid things" from the past on fire. In the meantime, a mysterious rider appears. And it looks like he’s up to no good...

    Once again, director Cristian Straub was joined by director of photography Jakob Suess in his journey for new forms of visual expression. Heavily inspired by the cinema of the late 60s & early 70s (like Nicolas Roeg’s “Don’t look now” or Polanski’s “The Tenant”), they crafted a film that emanates not only the aesthetic feel, but also embraces the courageous spirit and the cinematic curiosity of that particular era in film history.
    For THE GAME OF THINGS Fashion Film House Riese Farbaute teamed with Metrosafari Locations, both aiming to set new standards in forward thinking fashion film productions.

  5. The fashion-short movie depicts a young girl's journey to the realms of her deepest imagination. In the first act we experience her feelings of loneliness. She is longing for love, light, the unknown, a world yet to be discovered behind the web that entangles the tender bird of her existence - her desire for freedom is symbolized by the delicate beauty of wings and feathers.

    When she receives a letter, her day-dreaming is ignited by the anticipation of his love in the form of elements and motions representing thoughts, images of freedom, flying, love, colors, energy, strength - intensifying and finally exploding. This image slowly fades back to a dull surreal scene where she finally awakes.
