"It was a me outside of me... it was me in a form that shouldn't have been me!"

The Gate and The Mirror

In The Mirror on March 22, 2011 at 4:49 am

THE GATE: an indicator of the two worlds: reality and fantasy… by making the sound yes, yes, no, no it puts us into un uncertain feeling of not knowing what’s real and what’s NOT?!? A FEELING OF MYSTERY AND SUSPENSE… IS THIS ONLY A BAD DREAM?


A GATE: symbol of entering a word of mystery…

“I fixed my girp on the sword, and turned in that direction.  In a heartbeat, I tried to beam of my flashlight there.  It was a spot on the wall next to the SHOE RACK…  AND there I WAS!  That is to say it was a MIRROR!!!  There was nothing there except my own image reflecting back at me.  The Mirror musth have been just installed!  I felt immensely relieved and stupid at once.”

Below is an outline of which scenes we could include in the filming process:

START : DISTURBING NOISE OF THE BROKEN GATE
VERY DARK, CLOUDY SKY, HEAVY ATMOSFERE, STRONG BLOWS OF WIND IN THE BACKGROUND

BED SCENE: THE CHARACTER WAKES UP AND FRIGHTENED ACNOWLEDGES THE ABNORMAL AMBIENCE AROUND HIM, SOMETHING ISN’T RIGHT…

SUSPENCE, MYSTERY

WALKING IN THE CORRIDOR, LIGHTING HIS WAY WITH THE TORCH
SEEING REFLECTION IN THE MIRROR

REALISING ITS ONLY HIM
RELAX
LIGHTING UP A CIGARETTE
HAVING A LONG PUFF
LOOKING AGAIN IN THE MIRROR

SCARED AGAIN!!! IT’S NOT HIM!!!
THE REFLECTION TAKES CONTROL OVER HIS BODY
HE REALISES THE REFLECTION HATES HIM!
DISTORTED REFLECTION, AN IMAGE OF ICEBERG, FREEZING ATMOSFERE, HATRY

HE MANAGES TO COLLECT HIS STREANGHT, HE DROPS THE CIGARETTE, SMASHES THE SWARD INTO THE MIRROR

SMASHED MIRROR, PIECES FLYING IN SLOW MOTION, GLASS FLIES IN THE AIR
EVERYTHING LIGHTS UP, CLEAR SKY, IT’S A DAY
THE GATE STILL BROKEN, YES, YES, NO, NO…

at the end we can add ” the funny thing is … there was never any mirror there!”
