  • Title: gone-1

With “Gone” I re-enact a scene of Antonioni´s movie “Blow up” (with Vanessa Redgrave and David Hemmings) in which the photographer unsuccessfully searches for the dead body. We took the same camera angles, the same shots and tried to create the same expression like in Antonioni`s movie. But we didn’t shoot the scene just once or so often until we had the perfect takes. We shoot it chronological - again and again - the whole day. This way we got 13 complete scenes in which the sun rises and sets again. The actor has been made up only once before the shooting. In the course of the day his outer appearance transformed back into his own ego while his behaviour changed more and more into the one of David Hemmings.
