Director of photography:
A special technical solution prompted the idea to make a film out of Franz Kafka’s short story "Metamorphosis". This device consists of a camera made up of 6 objectives and the CCD chips arranged behind them which map the space around them in 360 degrees; the 6 separate images are then formed into a cohesive sphere with the help of a computer program.
Taking into account the fact that the workings of this device resemble the eyes of an insect in many ways, we attempted to adapt Kafka’s story from an insect’s – Gregor’s – subjective point of view from beginning to end.
