short video from the shining by michael paulus
work in progress. 2012-19

Shot for shot; locations, blocking, and direction of light of the opening title sequence to the iconic movie The Shining, but in reverse perspective including all scrolling, blue titles.

Taking the ominous, birds-eye view that gazes down, tracking the VW beetle as it winds its way up mountain roads to the Overlook Hotel and reversing that POV, looking back up at the omniscient 'eye in the sky'.

Eight shots including the original 1st as is, as well as the original Wendy Carlos score and ending with the title card 'THE INTERVIEW'.
