Filmmaker Lucas Bacle Layers Video on top of Architectural Drawings in new Short Film

Filmmaker Lucas Bacle Layers Video on top of Architectural Drawings in new Short Film

Filmed at the Vertou Cultural Center, designed by Atelier Fernandez & Serres, this video by filmmaker Lucas Bacle challenges the traditional conventions of cinematography, employing architectural drawings to provide context for the actions of the film’s protagonist. The cultural center itself becomes a central character to the short film, as Bacle layers video on top of orthographics, highlighting the character's relationship in space to the plans and sections.

Watch as the main character roams around the travertine façade and stark white interior surfaces of the building, winner of the 2016 Équerre D’Argent Prize for French Architecture. The film culminates with a twist ending that may just bring a smile to your face.
