Interrupt: A Slow-Motion Audiovisual Experience of Daily Life in Southeast Asia


Earlier this year, filmmaker and musician Paul Wex traveled through a number of countries in Southeast Asia. Instead of using standard photos or video to document his trip, Wex decided to create an “audiovisual neurotic slow-motion experience” of the everyday things he saw. What resulted is the short film above, titled “Interrupt.”

“I created the clip (and music) for myself, remembering the adventure through asian countries a few weeks ago,” the Austrian artist tells PetaPixel.

Everything was filmed through a Canon 5D Mark III and a vintage Olympus 35mm OM Zuiko lens. All the original footage was shot at 1080/30p, converted into slow-motion using Twixtor, and graded with Color Finale in Final Cut Pro X.

“Take your time, lean back and use big speakers or headphones,” Wex recommends. “Enjoy and feel what I saw on my last trip.”
