The Making of Relationshios

Originally shot on 8mm film, the dialogue was dubbed and the effects were created using Eyeon Fusion and Softimage XSI.
The challenge was to establish a very raw film style while still incorporating modern effects that are not as obvious, such as the translucent bottle on the evening table. The first scene begins with a camera movement showing a police officer seamlessly transitioning into a digital matte painting, which then leads directly through the window into the apartment. This scene required complex compositing with camera tracking and careful application of film grain to ensure a consistent look.
The TV screens are also all composited and tracked, adjusted to match the restless 8mm film image and sometimes tracked to camera movements.

The story is based on a short story by Nicole Selberherr, adapted by Patrick Zadrobilek into a screenplay for this short film. The special relationship with her object of desire leads the young lady to take unusual measures, and her rituals are specific.
