apokalupsis without soundtrack (password : movingimage)
So you can see part of the process
Me and Dara have just wrapped up our project. Done some final tweaking on the edit and put Breton Vivians score onto our footage. It has been a really fun experience working on this project, and great seeing what it’s like to work with someone else. Dara and I both worked really well to achieve our goal for this film.
This is our final title to appear before the first shot after the voice over.
It’s oil paint on paper. I wanted to create something similar to Lars Von Triers openings. A mixture of melancholia, antichrist, dancer in the dark and breaking the waves. I decided on the media oil paints as it relates to biblical paintings.

We have chosen a title for our film. Apokalupsis
“The Book of Revelation is the final book of the New Testament. The title came into usage from the first word of the book in Koine Greek: apokalupsis, meaning “unveiling” or “revelation” (the author himself not having provided a title). It is also known as the Book of the Revelation of Saint John the Divine or the Apocalypse of John, (both in reference to its author) or the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ (in reference to its opening line) or simply Revelation, (often dubbed “Revelations” in contrast to the singular in the original Koine) or the Apocalypse. The word “apocalypse” is also used for other works of a similar nature in the literary genre of apocalyptic literature. Such literature is “marked by distinctive literary features, particularly prediction of future events and accounts of visionary experiences or journeys to heaven, often involving vivid symbolism.” The Book of Revelation is the only apocalyptic document in the New Testament canon, though there are short apocalyptic passages in various places in the Gospels and the Epistles.”
We have chosen the title to represent the symbolism in our film, rather than the narrative. Relating to the book of revelation, which inspired all of our shots. Apokalupsis means revelation, but also sounds like apocalypse which makes sense with our narrative.
All the foley sound edited. All the last minute touches edited. Not to say there wont be anymore. Need some second opinions.
