The concept of this film is based around having two film sets that were being used simultaneously: the first was being filmed and projected onto the second set, merging the two sets into a single image. Using this, our two characters (Nick Cave's son Jethro and his girlfriend Sophie Willing) had a way to interact with each other across this digital feed, a representation of life, death and the afterlife.
