Evelyn is a story inspired by the concept of Death and the Maiden. The story follows the character Evelyn and her encounter with the personification of Death or the "scarlet king".
ABOUT THE PROJECT:
This short film was inspired by the concept of Death and the Maiden, which I first came across a few years back when I was writing my dissertation on the topic of Personification of Death. This project was to be a part of the dissertation but I decided to further develop the concept and present it in the form of a short film.
Other sources that inspired this story includes:
Edgar Allan Poe's short story The Masque of the Red Death.
Marianne Stokes' painting La Jeune Fille et la Mort (Death and the Maiden).
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: The Tale of the Three Brothers.
The film will be visually scattered with metaphors and symbolism and told in the format of visual poetry. Evelyn's encounter with the "scarlet king" is a way of showing how she tackles the event of death and in the process, unintentionally reveals her fears or worries in regards to the event.
