OFFF 2022 “DECIMA” Trailer by GMUNK
GMUNK: “DECIMA is a short film exploring themes of transmigration, empowerment, soul passage, and illumination. Produced for the legendary design conference OFFF Barcelona, which granted GMUNK the opportunity to craft their 20th Anniversary Title sequence with the highest honor.”
GMUNK: “Since my father passed away a few years ago, I’ve been obsessed with themes of the afterlife and transmigration, and I’ve been dreaming constantly about where his soul will be placed next.
“I’ve always had deep questions about soul passage and wanted to expand on it creatively through the lens of science fiction, to let the imagination run wild as a sort of expressive grieving phase. Sometimes dreaming is the best medicine.
“For this project, I teamed up with my concept writer and frequent collaborator Stephen Marshall and we developed two different screenplays, one long-form for the larger story called ‘The Rune Protocol’, and one shorter form entitled ‘Decima’ for the backstory leading up.
“Once you start creating the world, there are so many interesting vignettes you can take the characters on. The best part of being a filmmaker is dreaming up all the history and new scenarios.
“Right now, however, I’m focused on ‘Decima’ being a legendary title sequence for 2022 and rightfully so, because OFFF itself is the most legendary and their 20th anniversary is the cause for great celebration.”
