DAVID: I think you just put your finger on it Rob, c’est un dialogue entre du storytelling cinématique et du storytelling photographique. I think that’s what this project is really about. We watch cinema differently from how we view photography and I think that you have to see this project from a photographic perspective. Incognito isn’t just a two-minute film, it’s one expression from within a greater ecosystem.
ROB: Even the look of the film reinforces this duality. It looks like stop motion but it’s actually live action with fewer frames per second. It’s a technique that draws attention to itself, it creates a visual tension. It makes you ask “how did they do that, is it a film, is it a photo, or is it both?”. These are the two sides to our work. We have a cinematographic approach for the photography and a very photographic approach for the film direction.
