Horror, mystery, thriller !

About the project

1958.

Haunted by the World War 2 trauma, Sarah is today a young home care nurse. She stands aside very old people, for their last moments. Her job means everything to her. It’s a way to forgive herself, like a purgatory. But since a few days, her past has been coming back to her and takes over her sleep. She’s summoned to a mansion by a wealthy young man, Henri, to take care of his Grandmother, who he lives alone with. At the first sight, the tension is high. Sarah and Henri are both solitary, shy, reserved, and both share secrets.

From the first night, sarah experiences strange phenomena. Reality or nightmare ? If Sarah escaped Evil once, is it back to haunt her, to take her for good ? Or is she still unconsciously traumatised by the insomnia… ?


The main subject of this short film is above all, the power of trauma on the conscious and the unconscious. Tortured in the past, our main character seeks to calm his emotional imbalance.
At night, the main protagonist of our anxieties, explores our unconscious and plunges us into a madness generated by cyclical nightmares and too heavy loneliness. This is an incursion into the fear of night and sleep.
The worst demons hide in the unconscious of Man.
It’s been obvious for us to choose this genre to deal with this subject. The paranormal thriller, the psychological horror film, may well reflect a descent into hell, the revival of anxieties and more: the revelation of the worst sides of the human being.

DIRECTING STYLE


Going through a horror movie requires first of all, a certain respect of the genre.
It's a genre that demands codes: you have to be rigorous, because there are many classics, and the fans are very picky, a lott of movie lovers, have very specific expectations. It is all about having strong characters to which one attaches. They are not perfect but are intriguing: this is what’s interesting for the audience. Sarah is alone, tortured, sensitive. We want to protect her, but we want to know what is she hiding. Henri is equally lonely and uncomfortable, socialwise. Their magnetism is obvious; they understand each other. Grandmother, Sarah's maternal figure, is cold and untouchable. speechless, she is the most charismatic character in the film. She is always present. We sense her in every room of the manor ...
The enemy, represented by Sarah's unconscious. it is getting stronger and is attacking our heroine relentlessly.
We want to settle from the start a heavy atmosphere. The use of sequence shots, tracking shots and slow movements of cameras, the use of off-field are all tools that allow us to install a musicality and create our own rhythm of dread.
We do not want to copy the classics of the genre. Because there is no question of exorcism here. The purification of the soul is evoked but it is not the subject of the film. It comes before our story.
 

INSPIRATION

Literature

This novel has been a big shock to me. I read it when I was very young and the plot kept me from sleeping during weeks ... I remember being disturbed by the fantastic aspect of the story that leads us, readers, to doubt the narrator's dementia or believe in the reality of the facts reported. Indeed, the narrator reports his anxieties about the presence at night of an invisible entity named LE HORLA which makes him sink gradually into a madness seeking to deliver himself from this being. This madness then leads him to carry out various actions, all more insane than the others.
More interestingly, still, the writing of this book coincides with the premises of the madness of Maupassant who contracted syphilis and became a victim himself of hallucinations and duplication of personality ...
This novel is the first inspiration of the long version of the film.
 
Movies
 
A few years later, when I discovered Stanley Kubrick's SHINING, Le Horla resurfaced in my mind.
More recently, the films of and / or produced by JAMES WAN (The Conjuring, Annabelle, Incidious) have been capable to renewing the genre and bring a new breath both modern and nostalgic. It’s in this aesthetic note that we will work on our film.

THE SET

It’s main character of any horror films. Th film takes place in a mansion filled with memories and history, in which strange phenomena appear.
The attic, a veritable place of purgatory, is dark and troubled, a reflection of Sarah's spirit. It is important to emphasize the need to impose a neat and retro aesthetic (we are in 1958) that allows to include the film both in a historical reality but also to create a real universe and set the mood.


THE SOUND DESIGN

The night is silent, which can make it disturbing and frightening. This heavy silence will be marked by effects, strange noises, whispers and musical peaches (emblems of the famous "scare jump") that will accelerate as and when to deaf and suffocate our heroine.

LOUIS BERGOGNÉ // DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY

 

At the age of twelve, Louis is intrigued by the camera of his parents, and it is at this age that he begins to film his band of friends skaters, almost intuitively. Arrived at the high school he integrates the Audiovisual option that allows him to go to Tatarstan (Russia) to shoot a documentary on local traditions. From then on, when he gets graduated, he turned to a BTS Audiovisual then went on to make his arms in Canada as a cameraman / editor in an agency based in Montreal. Two years later and back in Paris, Louis focuses on his first motivation: to make his passion, photography in cinema, his job. He’s part at first of a large number of shorts with very little or no budget, so he knows how to use wisely the gear he has for a film. Needless to say, the projects are more ambitious and diversify: commercials, clips and entertainment. He works for names like Repetto, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Blondie, Grease, l'Oreal or West Side Story. Very close to nature, he draws inspiration from it in his approach to the light and the setting, without ceasing to be attentive to the scenario and the director for whom he strives to bring his own eyes.
