Short Films

Rebirth (2014) - Patryk Kizny

“Rebirth” is a philosophical story of human desire for transcendence and a Faustian dream of achieving immortality through creation at a symbolic level. It is a story of the cycle of life – from birth of an idea through its materialization, adolescence to decay and finally – a rebirth.

“Rebirth” develops the subjects further on a multiple new layers – starting from the idea and the narrative to an impressive range of applied visual techniques. In the film, besides of “standard” cinematography of dance scenes in the final act and motion-controlled HDR timelapse visuals known from “The Chapel”, used to render the glory of the temple as perceived by the artist, Kizny in an innovative way makes use of laser scans of the building directly as a means of expression and a novel element of film language. Through this technique the audience can witness the process of creation of an architectonic object as imagined by a genius architect long before the object is materialized. An industry insider will trace lots of other techniques applied, such as particle simulations, motion capture or photogrammetry.
