Overview

Write a short summary of what happens in the film.

In this beautiful film we feel the tension of a couple tearing each other apart, the tough love they share being at the edge of rupture. 

Symbolizing the rift that is created between the two lovers, their apartment cracks at every word too many. They realize they have gone too far and decide to come back to each other. A pure moment of cinema. 

Tell the jury about the production design / art direction.

The challenging aspects of the brief were the room splitting apart, the floor giving way under an actor and the couple sliding down a steep angled room. So we used different sets to do different jobs. We used electronic pulleys and wheels to split the room in two. We made a separate set for the falling floor and a long corridor to pull the actors on wires to create that sliding down effect.

Time was a factor in the build, as we had so much to create (it was entirely filmed in studio so every element was built for real or created in post production). We closely worked with the post production teams as our collaboration was essential, they took the sketchup models and scanned each set in order to make the other rooms you see in the wide shots of the building.
