Typewriters are sophisticated little boxes of machinery, steeped in nostalgia. Their design has stood the test of time and their unique sound is instantly recognisable to anyone who hears it.
Our love affair with the typewriter played out in our latest project for SBLabs where it became our muse. What started life as a technical exercise in antique materials and CGI texturing, developed into a creative exploration of the photographic relationship between subject, lens and artist.
Taking inspiration from the esteemed The Third and The Seventh by Alex Roman, the SBLabs Typewriter is a study of photogenic qualities, the finer details of the machine itself and lens based choreography. We feel that this engaging piece effectively explores this poetic relationship.
No story would be complete without a perfect musical score. We worked with a talented composer to create a piece that compliments the visuals and engages audiences.
We're delighted with the result.
