I made a new short movie dealing with reality and how we perceive it, how it can be influenced. We all have different realities; we all interpret things in a different way.
The footage was taken on a beautiful daybreak, with damp rising up from a small lake. By reversing the movie (the damp actually moved to the sun - to the warmth), and by adding music with suspense and letting the movie go B&W at the end the mood has changed completely. What will happen, what can we expect?
