Seven Sunday Films (SSF) and Jakarta-based lifestyle brand, Dominate have recently collaborated on a short film. The film written and directed by SSF director Angga Anggur, tells the dominance of technology, ‘Questioning all the status quo.’
“The film is about anxiety, combined with symbols and sarcastic narration, packaged with a message for humans to be aware of the power of ‘D.I.Y’ to keep moving and to be ready for the challenges of ‘all-instant’ conditions, in a form of a virtual letter concept,” said Seven Sunday Films, director Angga Anggur.
“This is the voice of anxiety of our thoughts about the dominance of technology that has made humans increasingly lose their identity, forget the power of their instincts and capabilities, and eventually makes most humans lazy and increasingly desire to live instantaneously, in the era of technological domination where every problem is caused by accessibility. Controlling the access means controlling everything, algorithms that regulate and interfere too much in even ‘sentimental’ matters and also in an era where there are too many products of the 4.0 revolution born of urban reality.”
Anggur explains: “I was fortunate to have been given this opportunity to imagine such a fantastical idea and bring it to life. The film allowed me to push myself beyond the usual norms and up the ante – it gave me the opportunity to inject my passion and style of creativity onto it. I was very happy that the end result, created an even better film that what I had imagined. This unique approach demonstrated Dominates pursuit of perfection, attention to detail and pride in their approach when it comes to going the extra mile”.
“We were very happy to have been given the chance to collaborate on this project with Dominate and Anggur. Working with the team and showcasing their product was a great experience. Getting to build the concept from scratch really showed off SSF talents from pre-production through to delivery. I am very impressed how holistically, Anggur and the team approached the process — everything from the way SSF creatively engaged with the director to develop the vision and put together all the elemental pieces needed to make the spot both beautiful and mesmerising,” says Perdana Batangtaris, Executive Producer/ Head of Production, Seven Sunday Films.
“Dominate was such a joy to work on. The client was brave and relentless about pushing the creative envelope. We’re proud of Anggur, it was his conception, and the vision he brought to life pushes the norm, represents originality whilst keeping the message relevant and clear,” says Rodney Vincent, Founder, Seven Sunday Films.
