Annecy 2014 - "Hors Champ"
Hors Champ (Off camera) takes a much darker, grittier tone in it's approach by recreating a World War I style scene, complete with the 1:1 aspect ratio hearkening to camera technology of that era. Faceless men huddle together in the trenches, desperate rushes are made into oncoming fire, and eventually the camera man meets his maker as well.
The sound treatment for such a bite sized short was especially cool, going for a mostly silent route until a bullet makes contact with it's intended target. Directed by Hugo De Faucompret, Arthus Pilorget Pierre Pinon, Ravit Johan and Valentin Stoll.
