JURGEN spends his birthday with his grandson NICHOLAS, cheerful boy aged 8 years old, going for a walk in the park. They decide to sit down in a bench. Jürgen takes out his journal in order to go over old times. Suddenly TOM, a really good friend of Nicholas, appears in the park and Nicholas prefers to go to play war with him.
Jürgen watches affectionately how Tom and Nicholas play war, but at some point he decides to open his journal to get more entertained. He starts to read his birthday page of 1918, when he was getting his 19th in the middle of WW1. He still looks at the kids from time to time to make sure they are fine.
The birthday moments he is reading in his diary turns into bad times at the same time that Nicholas starts to lose the war game. Jürgen struggles in the bench while reading. Nicholas struggles in the playground while being aimed.
Nicholas lies on the grass because he has been shot but after a while he stands up taking Tom’s hand. Tom and Nicholas walk together laughing in the direction of the bench where Jürgen is.
At that moment, Jürgen realises that WW1 was not a game where you can stand up at the end to go home , but it put face to face people that were not really different one from others. They both believe they were answering their country call but they were writing full stop in others live or in their own. When Jürgen gets over it, he stands up and walks home embracing both kids with his arms and leaving his journal -so his memories from war- on the bench.
A survivor from WWI struggles to overcome his memories from war in order to forgive, not to forget.
1ST ROUGH DRAFT OF THE SHORT FILM SCRIPT

1. EXT. Extreme Long Shot. DAY.
An old man is sat in a bench in a park. We come close to him. He is a happy old man who seems to be very modest and calm, but also a bit tired of living. He has a lot of wrinkles due to the age and possibly to a non-easy life.

The kid realizes that the medal has fallen and try to pick it up but his granddad denies him and they keep walking hand in hand…
Feeling inspired by Marina Abramović .
Space and place, was the team for this week project , and I wanted to make an experimental video showing how I see ART, and how can I interpret the topic.
For me Space in this video represents the night, and the dark space. She is feeling romantic and this video represents the frustration of an artist. I wanted to present the dark space between the artist world and reality.
The Place she is empty (mostly), and dark , and you can barely see the wall, witch can be translated as she is trying to brake the 4th wall, but no one cold even understand her reality.
Marina Abramović is a New York-based performance artist who began her career in the early 1970s. Active for over three decades, she has recently begun to describe herself as the “grandmother of performance art.” Abramović’s work explores the relationship between performer and audience, the limits of the body, and the possibilities of the mind.
(see her last piece of art called ( THE ARTIST IS PRESENT)

Let’s play a game!,
I had this idea since my last piece, as maybe I see things a bit differently, so I’m going to give you some clues in the text below, and I would love for you to leave me a comment on how you find this piece or the message of it
Heal, is a piece, that represents ART, in a 3:25 minute video.
The story is about an artist which changes personalities, and colour, to run away from the present and see herself in the future.
It shows the transformation in 3 parts : clues!? ,( wig, purple,water).
I wanted to present a simple short-story, with a powerful message about the TRUTH.
(The truth is just a beast lost in paradise !)
“The truth may bury this,but I’m gonna open my eyes under the ground , and if it’s still snowing in hell, at least my eyes will bleed for my Insanity.” I wrote this line thinking about the frustration, lies, and feelings that comes with being an artist and falling in love with one. clue 4.( Read between the line)
Art meets nature.
If you remember in one of my previews posts I said that art is nature and nature is art, as the environment that we live in is an infinite place of inspiration. I want to present to my audience that they can create art with nature, and that nature is the most inspiring of all.
” Where is god, when you can’t even see yourself?” is clue nr 5.
The truth will make us heal ! . Would you agree with that? or maybe the truth is just a lie!?
The film ends in a good theme and a her realisation on what is the truth, is all about.
Cleaning her pain which represents her scars and her past.
The truth!? there are all lies , but still a beast in paradise !
Heal (Short film) is the continuation of Chapter 1 (Angel’s Call) :

Bless your soul. Love is nature and nature is love
The meaning of this video is to see life with another eyes. Life will never be clear and sharp without a meaning.
This beginning of the film. wanted to show how love can be compared to nature .
The film is a love story presented and compared by nature.
After the love is gone and she dies , the world adapt to the story and shows his emotions , and now the world is just fog.
As a very passionate human being, I love Art, witch off course have to be related with my childhood. I’m a student at Media Production, filmmaker and an artist. I see the world as an infinite playground, and an inspiring place to get your creation growing.
Todays topic, is ABSTRACT, and I have 2 clips for you to hopefully be inspired by. I love abstract, and the reason why, is because I feel that abstract art, is more personal, intrigue you to see beyond the art .
The first clip, is from Zacher-Finet, and we can see a demo, and how he created the abstract acrylic painting, called “Gedankenschleifen” ( see the link below)
The second clip, is a short-film, called “Beyond The Fog” directed by me , and I would like for you to comment and give me feedback on what are your feeling when your watching it, and what is the story in ur opinion. ( The motto for the film is “Life will never be clear and sharp without a meaning. ”
Leave me your comments and feedback. I would like to hear from you, and read your opinions about ABSTRACT.
