Thomas Vanz “INTRA” – From Black Hole to Big Bang
French director Thomas Vanz’ second film “INTRA” gives us “a realistic visualization of what a spinning black hole could look like and an aesthetic vision of the white hole theory.”
Thomas Vanz: “We don’t know yet what is inside a black hole, we know it is a singularity, a point where the our theories don’t work anymore.
“One of the possibilities is called The White Hole Theory, a sort of exit from the black hole, a point where everything is born, including space and time. Some compare it to the Big Bang.
“INTRA tells the visual story of this theory, a journey from the black to the white hole, a cosmic tale of death and birth.
“For production, I shoot really close footage of macroscopic chemical reactions in order to have a library of elements that are used to make cosmic compositions in post-production.
“For the fall into the black hole, I also asked the help of a dutch developer Pim Schreurs, who coded an accurate simulation of what the black hole’s gravitational lensing would look like.
”The music is also the result of a collaboration – my good friend Julien Marchal, a french pianist, and Jonathan Fitas, a famous sound designer and violinist.”
