ESCAPE - a mini film, by me (Kakouris Spyridon)


This mini film was made during the "Fog Film Festival" (for more info), as part of ATHINORAMA lucky draw.

This mini-film (as with the rest 3) was supervised by the professional movie director Vardis Marinakis and edited by also professional editor Despoina Kontargyrh. I have to say it was nice working with pro's.

Other than that, the film is really simple in its concept. It's all about symbolizing what is going on at the festival, with the film-makers finding their way out of the closed doors of "the system" towards their own movie festival.

And I shouldn't omit thanking my protagonist Christos Alatzidis for acting for me once more AND superb noise musician AS11 for letting me use his music.

REFORMAT (a short film by Spyridon Kakouris and Andreas Papoulkas)


This is me and my best friend's (Andreas Papoulkas) short movie. The story is heavily influenced from "1984", (i jokingly call it "1984 in 10 minutes"), but it is infused with our own fears and insecurities about the near future.

Though we were technically challenged we did our best to make this movie as professionally as possible. The music was written from scratch from Andreas and the whole movie, from day 1 to finishing of post-production took 9 full months!

I hope you enjoy and think about it a little bit. Hopefully we can avert a future such as this one!

And here is the video from the First Screening at the "5th Ermoupoli Science Fiction Festival".



It was also screened at an ΑΛΕΦ (Athens Science Fiction Club) gathering, before 1984's "1984".
