A sad and lonely cowgirl asks, "What's your story?" triggering a series of events across lands, time and language in Photoplay's Infinite Stories for the 2012 Sydney Film Festival.
Screenwriter and playwright Lally Katz collaborated with director Scott Otto Anderson on the script, working on the idea of a single story, told by many across different worlds, languages and genres.
Working closely with Boccalatte Design, a dramatic visual idea that would cut-through on the streets of Sydney for the winter month of June was required.
Anderson said they were asked by the SFF to represent the broad audience base as well as the diversity of films.
“This manifested itself initially as a celebration of in-your-face colour portraits,” he said. “Yet with the trailer we tried to mash up as many stories across as many genres as possible, each linking one to the next as though it’s a conversation in Chinese whispers, or like the Dadaists’ Exquisite Corpse. It’s an absolute visual cacophony, a celebration of the huge mixture of stories being told at the festival this year."
