THE CREATORS PROJECT:

Tree trunks become an ecosystem of short films in Dejan Radovanovic's reimagined woodlands.

Enter a Computer Generated Forest of 'Talking Trees'

Patchworks of projected films canopy the trees in Vancouver-based filmmaker Dejan Radovanovic’s future forest,Talking Trees. "[The project] is my unfinished study imagined as meditative piece which attempts to take viewer on a continuous introspective walk,” Radovanovic tells The Creators Project. The filmmaker began filming the project in the evergreens of British Columbia but then took to the studio to create and animate his cinematic conifers. “First I made a projection map for my trees using fragments from my previous works and then rendered a whole animation with 3ds Max using that map in material slot,” he explains. “At the end, I blended layers in After Effects and added sound in Premiere. The sound is made with mixing field recording and sounds generated with great iVCS3 emulation on iPad.” Talking Trees’ reimagined landscape is a kind of natural database of Radovanovic’s creative portfolio, a crop of ready-made video fragments.

FINGERPAINTING

4k Scope (2.39:1) / 4096x1716, color, stereo sound, 03:59 minutes, 2018

This moving images improvisation is homage to what I consider as one of the most amazing scenes in film history:

Michelangelo Antonioni’s Zabriskie Point Final Scene has been very special and always inspirational to me for almost 40 years.

This project has been planned for some time and would not have been realized if there was no Jordan Nobles and his magical Steinway.

The speeches are overlaid translations of a passage from Paul Bowles' novel, The Sheltering Sky (1949):

"Because we don’t know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can’t even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless."
