Alix & Mac – OnRoute

OnRoute is a short film explaining the concept of a new service that connects people through common needs and interests in the context of the city. Members gain Karma points by doing OnRoute jobs ‘on route’ to their destination (for example, on their way to work).

Alix and Mac worked well together throughout this course. Sharing common interests and inspiration, they came up with a series of three movies, combining live footage and animation. Creating a unique visual universe, they explored various techniques across platforms – hand sketching scenarios, in camera editing, voiceover work, sound mixing and more.

Finally a desire to shoot, time and edit everything manually and stay away from the perceived “magic” of non-linear editing, helped them learn the intricacies involved in storytelling, rhythm and timing. Learning these skills created a fun and inspirational, yet efficient, film-making process.
