AKIYO - Up Next // Feature Film (75'')
The concept of the movie is a casting callback day with seven people auditioning for a part. In a room with three camcorders, a panel of three judges guide the audition with 13 unconventional questions for the participants to interpret. The rest of the movie shows the preparation of the actors for the callback session and their reactions after the fact. The actors choose the setting of their rehearsals, from street locations, cabs, subway stations and cafes, depending on their interpretation of the questions being asked. During the rehearsals and the callback day, the narrative was created as an improvised fiction with simultaneous voiceovers and the corresponding use of axis shift around the locations.
The casting audition concept should also be comprehended as a behavioural observation. For example, when the participants were asked’''Do you believe in miracles?'', many elicited similar gestures such as raising their arms on both sides. Through the movie soundtrack and production, the film represents the circularity of creation.
The movie was recorded in Berlin (Germany), Kiev (Ukraine), and Istanbul (Turkey).
