Such is Life
A story of two undertakers, one young and new to the job, the other old and dehumanized.
“Such Is Life” is a short film project with an initiative to diversify and expand the range of genre stories told in Singapore. Drawing inspiration from theater and satire, it is a genre bending narrative consisting of dark comedy, tragic comedy and drama that focuses on themes of life and death, young and old, authority, ethics and values.
This project is planned with extra care and emphasis on the development & production stages, from cinematography, art direction to scheduling, casting and performance. Methods and techniques of film-making were researched upon and discussed before being applied to the overall treatment of the production and post production process which includes:
- Split comping
- Ensemble staging
- Natural and stylistic blend of lighting schemes
- Set design and set building
Genre: Dark comedy
