On a 6 month journey around the world via the oceans, NICOLOR produced a short film, called Eudaimonia (noun. Happy, Healthy, Prosperous). The challenge of only using an iPhone to see what boundaries could be pushed in cinematography, the film gave this nostalgic grainy effect in edits, which added to its raw feel. The capturing was fluid, and not restricted with the preparation of large equipment.
Working with Instagram's Boomerang feature, the idea to piece each boomerang together as a collective for film, created a sense of capturing a moment but being able to relive it for a second before continuing the journey. It produced a feeling of déjà vu through-out the making of the film.
The song Melodies and Desires by Lykke Li, just worked with this sense of our spiritual connection within love, in our connection to one another, and that of nature. Rhythms, and Beats are everywhere, through our journey in life, our connections, and the movement of the ocean can remind us of that.
