INTRA - A journey into a black hole
"From the end to the beginning"
We don't know yet what is inside a black hole, we know it is a singularity, a point where every rules of physics collapse.
One of the possibilities is called "The White Hole Theory", a sort of exit from the black hole, a point where everything is born, including space and time.
Some compare it to the Big Bang.
INTRA tells the visual story of this theory, a journey from the black to the white hole, a cosmic tale of death and birth...
As a tribute to Nolan's Interstellar, this second short after NOVAE go deeper into our conception of cosmos, interpreting the unknown to propose a vision of the most extreme celestial object of our Universe...
I am proud to collaborate with the genious french workshop, Nano Lab, who helped me to create and direct the "white hole" part of the movie.
With him, we tried to reach the most amazing microscopic shot of what a big bang should look like with an unique chemical reaction.
For the fall into the black hole, I also asked the help of a dutch developer Pim Schreurs, who coded an accurate simulation of what the black hole's gravitational lensing would look like. Based on his well known "worm hole simulation", this shot is one of the most ambitious and the most complexe I had to work on for this project.
The music is also the result of a collaboration with my good friend Julien Marchal, a french pianist who helped me to compose an unique piece of progressive, intense and minimalist piano melody, and Jonathan Fitas, a famous sound designer and violonist.
