A movie I made based on a short story by Robert Sheckley. The shots are over a year old because I never found quite the right music until I ran into this melancholic song by Amanyth.
The shots with the clock are a bit messy... I wonder why I didn't use the bijocam then? Lateron, in the library scene everything was done with the bijocam, so I could merge shots into eachother. I recall trying to work that flying beat birds of prey have into the movie. Again this movie plays with time and is circular.
The essential theme of the story it that the drive for (forbidden) knowledge leads to disaster. In the original story the main character was a virgin, suggesting the denial of sex as an offering to the pursuit for knowledge(power). It might even been take as a contra-christian story: the saints who withdrew from society to gain wisdom are here punished.
But did Robert Sheckley mean to write that?
Maybe he thought it was just an interesting story....
