Inni - Neptune - Fortune

Director Vincent Morisset (and his brilliant production crew) has created an artistic experience which explodes existing film conventions, turning a Sigur Rós concert into a kinetic abstract expressionist canvas. Raw HD video footage was transferred to 16mm black and white film stock which was then optically manipulated in real-time producing an indescribable sense of sub-conscious unity with Sigur Rós's cathartic music. Watching it just before attending a Halloween party only heightened the evening's sense of surreality:
