A poetic metaphorical short film based around the effects of anxiety, using cinematic styles to convey this message through cinematography and sound design. Respire will leave audience's knowing that they can overcome the hard times in life, even when they feel so lost without any control.
ABOUT THE SOUNDTRACK
Respire is a revendication of finding the strength inside of us. That is why Maxime Hurtado layered so much instruments. To find the beauty and the richness in qualities and weaknesses of each instruments families. The soundtrack is divided in 3 parts. The first one has this deep organic feeling. The one we call empathy. It is not less than 6 acoustic guitars, light synths, few tribal toms and low drums to feel the hard times of life. The second part reveals our failnesses, the easy way of giving up. The touching ukuleles arpeggios flooded into a live performed choir echoes the fragilities of emotional piano and tiny mallets. The finale explodes of trust and courage to never give up in a powerful mixture of electro, rock and pop. Rhythmed by 4 live drums, multiple hand-crafted taikos and electro drums. Enhanced by brassy pads. Concluded by almost 10 electric guitars, Respire ends on a note called hope.
