A three-hour long movie sometimes becomes a test of patience. Sometimes, it’s too interesting that keeps us captivated till the end, but most of us get tired watching a movie. Falling asleep in the mid of a movie is too common.
Do you want to witness something unique?
A film that has a time span of 720 HOURS! YES. I shit you not!
A Swedish director Anders Weberg is creating the movie ‘Ambience’ which is going to stay on your screens for 30 days!
Anders have been working in the field of visual arts for about two decades and finally he decided to test his skills by making a film having a duration of 72 hours. He has decided to release this movie in all seven continents simultaneously.
Seems like a freak show, no? This is going to be his very last film. He plans to destroy all of the film copies right after the screening so that it won’t be played again.
If you think this one is going to be a great example of a thriller movie, then the answer is a no.
Ambience is what Anders said “scripted, dramaturgical piece.” About the movie, he said,
‘“My process is that I collect glimpses of light with the camera and take that with me into the computer where the real work begins, taking all these glimpses and arranging and rearranging them into a flow that I feel represents the emotion I try to express. There is a lot of post production behind it where I run all the captured material through numerous processes. I use After Effects for that part, so this will be for sure an ephemeral experience, and the only thing that will remain is the memories of the little bits and parts the viewer got to see.””
A lot of people think that this is the very first attempt to make a movie with that long time duration, no it is not. Modern times and Forever are the movies that were released in 2011 having a time duration of 240 hours!
The director is already done with the shooting of the first half of the film which means he has already recorded the 400 hours of Ambience. The director is positive about the rest of the progress!
So, are you planning to watch Ambience? If you do, don’t call me, ever again.
