This is a French silent film about love and loss. I was really inspired by the music that accompanies this piece, and I loved the grainy, cut-up look of the footage in ESCARGOTS, and the idea for it just sort of popped in my head, so here it is.
And here is where I must admit: French is my third language (the first being Swedish, the second English), and sometimes it really shows. I don't speak it on a daily basis and I found myself struggling with the correct words and sentence structure. Hopefully a native speaker can let me know what rubbish I've done with their poor language and is willing to help me out.
The English translation of the mini-story I wrote:
The days have become lonely, and gray.
I have become nothing. I do not exist anymore, only between the shadows.
Remember our first meeting?
There was this color. I loved every part of you.
Your eyes, your laughter. The beauty of your bones.
But now you are gone.
I live in a fog.
I cannot live without you.
So I will not.
