Any questions about this quirky game please ask, and I will be more than happy to explain the concepts/ideas behind the film. DB 
beautiful and complex...not even sure how you made it but I'm really impressed. 
wow! great job guys! awesome concept! 
Loved the concept and the effects. How did you do it? You filmed separately the little men right? Great idea, great editing, photograpy, well... everything. Congrats. 
very nice. 
I enjoyed the photography and fantastic effects. You did a great job. 
Thank you. 
We had real fun making it, and it took a long time. There is a sequel too. The idea is loosely driven from the board game "Cribbage" and we saw the bar as a hospital of the future where one can play with geometry to "mend/fix/re-align" at the molecular level. So in essence its a film about healing as much as a playful work. 
Cheers! Its edited in FCP from transfered film. The small figures are many layers of video of the choreograped dance (thats me) composited over the bar scene shots. It took a lot of time and great effort from my awesome team. We built the set as a small game board and the large version is real size in timber- and then all these shots are scaled down and layered over the master gaming sequences..... 
Amazing! for a short of 3 mins, you have put a great effort! Its definitely very different and fresh! 
Cheers! 
Thank you! 
very cool film...i loved the little men...good luck. 
wow! really absorbing visuals and excellent execution. great work n good luck. 
It's stylistic and very "own", very interesting and well done.Good work! 
Many thanks 
Thank you Tinna! 
We have played with time, expanded and compressed it, and layered it. Glad you enjoyed the journey. Cheers 
Thanks Davide - I have been inspired by German Expressionist work, and the Bauhaus movement. The design aesthetic here is carried through a series of recent films with dance at their core. I love old Keaton and Chaplin films too, before technology connected speech to celluloid. Their physicality speaks volumes. 
That was great Daniel. Can definitely see the Bauhaus influence. Just curious, if you were to do a second film, would you use this same approach? :) 
Beautiful stuff Daniel. Really dug the effects and the dancing and the whole thing was looking pretty schmicko. Not too sure if I understood what he was understanding, but maybe that only matters if I also buy into the idea that he's from around 'here'. Anyway, nice one, you got me thinking. Have you seen Deja Vu ? It's got some related ideas I think, and is almost as tasty to watch as your film . 
Its definetly one of the best here. And what maks its special is that you can see you have your own individual style. Congratulations! 
Many thanks! There is a sequel and a third and final film planned to make the tryptych.
