It was an honour to be invited by Forward Festival to create the main title film for this year’s programme of events. Titled ‘Threshold’, our film is a direct response to the festival’s format and mission to investigate the virtualisation and digitisation of our lives.
The threshold between the real and the virtual is the key to our concept; it’s the meeting point where spaces expand the minute we answer a video call or enter a gaming sphere. Our experiences in those moments mix together — we see other spaces, other homes and studios, and increasingly other virtual representations of the people we know.
The line is blurred and we’re crossing it.
"Breathtaking! Seeing it at the festival for the first time was my personal highlight. It’s been a pleasure working with you."Othmar Handl
