Conscious Life is a silent film which portrays the pain and delirium of love and tragedy. The short is presented as black and white, set in the late 1920s. The film shows a young photographer in his studio, haunted by the obsession of an unrequited love, and ensuing indifference towards his current lover. Waking from sleep in a dream-like sequence, his photograph on the wall and reality confuse their roles. Commissioned as a music video, the film is intertwined with the homonymous track by Aereogramme.
Conscious Life was shot entirely on HDV, edited, then dismantled into individual still frames, and processed individually before recompiling them as an image sequence in the final edit. The visual effects were obtained by means of manual rotoscoping and digital compositing, colorizing and adjusting as stills, with the intention of obtaining a film-like visual quality, and also retaining the imperfections of frame-by-frame human intervention.
