5 Minutes Each

Posted in , , ,

Written/Directed/Produced by Vojin Vosovic

5 Minutes Each is a metaphorical story about the constant struggle of the artist to reach those five minutes of limelight. A tale about an upswing and downfall, with the climax appearing concurrently and unexpectedly. The hermetical life of artists, who are enclosed into their own world of ideas, striving to create the epochal masterpiece. Even if they succeed, the image they create is the reflection of themselves. And with the same fervor, they repeat the process in endless cycles.

Begun as an audio experiment, Masks illustrates modern exploitation, production and consumption in animated terms. In Masks the audio came first, thus all images exist to tell the musical story, instead of the typical method of scoring music after animation has been completed. In this manner, Masks projects itself as a musical interpretation, a contemporary and disturbing version of the Disney formula of Fantasia.
