FUTURE PROOF - SHORT FILM

FUTURE PROOF is a short film developed for the 2011 A/NZ PromaxBDA Conference. Essentially a labour of love for DMCI creative director Nathan Drabsch, this performance piece continues to be admired throughout the world.

The response to this emotive piece, still amazes us. Since launch FUTURE PROOF has been selected for various film and digital media festivals and showcases throughout the world.

The only boundary to the project was the theme of FUTURE PROOF. The development of the film started with an approach that aimed to focus not on futuristic notions but consideration of that which is timeless. People, the expression of self and the interactions between each other are timeless qualities relevant to creativity, no matter what the future holds.

The concept started quite fluidly, by briefing a variety of dancers, with individual performance styles, to develop choreography based on the concepts of growth, sharing, sending and receiving.

Directed by Nathan Drabsch, the performances were shot over one day using two RED Epic cameras, capturing the action at high speed. All design, editing and post production was done in-house by The DMCI team. We worked closely with composers and audio designers Mark Brandis & Jeff Black from ism studios, to create a unique score that perfectly compliments the performances.

As a whole, the focus is on the dancers as they create and interact with abstract forms in a vast unknown world. Their own movements determine the creation and final destruction of these elements. Their own paths of communication and creative expression have come full circle, and all that remains is the individual.

    We explore to discover, to learn and also to understand.
    Although our world is a little bit mad at the moment,
    I strongly believe that knowledge can be the key to a better place.

    I’m proud to introduce you my last short film. "Space Topology" explores the mind of a musician when he composed and lets his imagination carry him. We dive, head first, into the mental universe of Vincent Artaud. While the musical notes appear and a melody is built, the contours of a space topology appear.
