Project Description

LOVELY PLANET short film

A psychedelic trip through the eyes of a backpacker, who is also questioning the appropriateness of the critical mores of the Lonely Planet guide. Starting with a parachute jump, often manipulated images fly by at breakneck speed. In Lovely Planet our heart beats faster and our retina gets overloaded by images and impressions.
