FATUM is a short film that explores both ends of a romantic relationship at the same time.
Because of this mismatch of expectations, ‘His’ eagerness to please comes across as intense, ‘stalkerish’ behaviour. ‘Her’ apathy and revulsion toward him contain strong undertones of fear as she attempts to fend off His advances and subdue His attempts to deepen their relationship. As the communication breaks down, the two protagonists are pulled into and between each others’ fantasies.
FATUM is a collaborative project by WMP and Boxhead.
To explore the roles of music and sound design in film, two scores were written for the piece: one which uses sound design (vimeo.com/76685153), and this alternative version which focuses on instrumental music composition.
