VI.BLOW AWAY MY HEAD (MOVIE EDITION)
''The 3rd floor'' soundtrack tells the story of the film on the most instrumental way, it's a story about the process of creative
growth, the time and the constant conflict with the ideal version of ourselves. The songs, written and produced by A.G. follow the events of the film in chronological order - narrating a tale of their own.
The creative approach was to design a package that would stand alone as a piece of art, following but not replicating the film's visual identity and other side materials, such as posters. For the artwork I drew inspiration from the movie-plot's climax, using the scenes' key elements, imagery, colour palette and main textures. On the cover the film's logo stands in centre of the broken wall referring to the plot's most important moment.The booklet follows the same direction dark surreal artwork
Artwork tasks include: Art direction, 3d logo design, Digipack wrap and a booklet of four spreads.
ABOUT THE FILM
The Soundtrack was created and produced for my graduation animated Short ''The 3rd floor'' - It's a story about the process of the artistic growth, the time and the constant conflict with the ideal version of ourselves. My view on the horror fiction story ''The music of Erich Zann'' by author H. P. Lovecraft.
Synopsis: A young student moves in the oldest building of the town where he comes across with the only tenant, a deaf(!) cellist. Soon the magnificent tunes of the cello are going to reveal their evil nature. What happens when an artist gets lost on his talent and vanity? Is indeed the artist who controls his work or the work could take control over him? Could an art piece behave as a single living thing, growing on its own path through its creators body?
