Desertus Antipotes (Desert Antipote) is an experimental film I decided to make with a good friend while en route to NAB Show 2012. Utilizing a variety of beautiful, vintage Lomo Anamorphics we took a scenic detour through Mojave National Preserve and eventually found ourselves on the iconic Las Vegas Strip.
This film is about opposites (antipotes): Mojave and Vegas. While both places relatively coexist within a similar environment they are inherently different sides of the same coin. The noun "Desert" is defined as "lifeless, without vegetation, uninteresting"; this relies heavily on one's perspective.
