'The Mechanism of Suspended Time' was made & shot on an almost non existent budget - and predominantly by a crew of 2.
With an original visual approach & storytelling style, the film was shot almost entirely in a small private residence where interior/exterior locations were used extensively to recreate the essential '5 continents' storyline on screen. All effects shot in-camera. No CGI. No location shooting. No studios. No digital VFX & no blue screens. All original sets & handmade models. It is an homage to the Golden Era of Cinema.
Log Line: 'It is said that the gods have created Time only to measure love.' SD
'An original French period tale set in Paris recounts the fateful meeting between two destined lovers: Pierre & Camille.
Born to world-renown rival master clockmakers - Mr de Maintenant & Mr de Contretemps - their paths are marred by a controversial past. However, the greater force of true love is at work when a mysterious pocket watch appears to create the right time & right place for all that really matters in life.'
