Midnight Express is a controversial movie based on a real story released in 1978 about the journey of an american man in a turkish prison during 4 years. My intention on this opening sequence is to illustrate the anguishing and dark mood of the movie, by displaying a sequence of images that cause these emotions on the viewer.
As this piece evolves, images get darker and more confusion, exploring the sentiment of claustrophobia that the main character experiments throughout the movie.
This piece was developed in Katya Moormans motion 2 class, in Pratt Institute's master's program. PS.: All footage was shot by me using a Nikon D5200.
