    end of the world

To reconstruct the athmosphere of the old silent films a great effort was taken by digital image processing. The scratches, motion changes, partially unsharpness, flickering white images and dissolves are not part of the original film material. This has been added later by single image processing with Harry and Paintbox.

In this way the impression of a quasi documentary film is created, which is mixed to a new dramaturgy out of several documentary 16mm films and parts of movies quoting the style of expressionist painting, poetry, music, language and film.

The dramatic increase in the war scenes is reached by a high editing sequence and the use of colored images, which are details of expressionist paintings (for example: Otto Dix "Der Krieg").
