Sound design for a short film directed by Janin Halisch, Dffb, 2012.
Skinny Love follows Hanna and Sebastian on their last common journey. Somewhere in the countryside they come together for the last time. Silent and close, but parting seems inevitable.
My second work for Janin Halisch was again a very exciting project. The emphasis she puts on the auditory part of a film makes sound design a rewarding task.
Like in 'Vor Dir' Halisch lets us take a sensitive view at the precarious liaison of two young people. The camera follows the protagonists closely but never intrusive.
My aim for the sound design was to meet just that level of distant yet intense attention, the visuals so convincingly create. Wind and silence became the main auditory ingredients for this portrait of a fading love.
To me, the outcome is a beautifully calm and cautious film that nevertheless inexorably draws you in.
