The Undo Button < Video>

Directed and recorded by Nanou Dimachki and Sean kim:


This Video follows up on a fictional idea we came up with: The Undo Button.
The project started as an advertisement for this fictional button that let’s people undo one action in their past, supposedly a comedy. However the storyboard created was hard to executed, acknowledging the fact that we are students and don’t always have resources we started to think of a different way to shoot our “Undo Button”. It is kind off important to know how would people feel if they got a chance to undo one action in this lifetime; we tend to assume that people would probably feel it’s the “Best chance ever”… well, Is it? We eventually decided to pop the question at random people in the streets and see the different reactions we would get. How would they genuinely feel when asked…

The result turned out emotionally very fulfilling, we gathered the different reactions we got from people and edited them in a certain harmony related to the answers, some people remembered dramas that happen to them and wish to undo them, others  thought about periods of their life they missed out on… some answered objectively about certain values or non-values we have to endure: like violence, and people in politics and power… But most surprisingly we had many who answered that they wouldn’t undo anything…

Though the purpose of this Video changed from how we planned it in the beginning, I think i like better the result we have then the initial story board created.

If Bloodchild was a Soundtrack

This Track is inspired by Ocatvia Butler’s Bloodchild.
Though the story is a sci-fi horror story, but it also combines many other aspects and values: Human vs Alien, children, pregnancy, giving birth, tragic reality, life, death, blood, fear, horror, family, dreams, motherhood etc. For that reason my track is a combination of weird ambient unearthly sounds with a recurrent pure sad vocal of a woman.
I have recorded over 50 sounds taken from daily elements but when put in the edit some are altered to become unrecognizable and give the weird sci-fi feeling of the story: Brush against fabric texture, chopsticks falling, metal coffee jars, elevator beeps, drawer opening/closing, door, knob, paper, nylon, nails, tapping, spoon, glass, metal scratching, metal net, Porcelain plate, wood cracks…etc
*Vocals are taken from

The story starts with a family dreaming/tripping… Like the story my track starts on a trippy mood as if in a dream, and follows a certain progression in the “weirdness” until it reaches the scary experimental climax (In the story the child was experimenting a horrible fate) to fall down again and end with the same sad vocal it started with… showing  the tragic fate of humanity.
