    48-Hour Film Project

    Episode 24: Esca

    First aired: Tuesday, 3 May 2016 at 17.24 hours

    You feel like a fish under the sea.

    For millions of years light and special frequencies are used by fishes (sharks, plankton, jellyfish, shrimp, crabs) to lure their prey, but also to defend themselves or to reproduce. This light and frequency waves are called "ESCA".

    The film Esca of Team Kale Weerwolf speaks more to the imagination, than it appears at first sight. It starts with a woman, who's eating a fish while bathing. However, as the water drains away, she's visibly struggling. The setting of the film is a metaphor for the world under the sea, where anglerfish lure their prey further into darkness.

    A very special film during the 48 Hour Film Festival with no less than six nominations. Team Kale Weerwolf went home with two awards: Best Special Effects and Best Editing. Team Kale Weerwolf was established by a collaboration between the education Audiovisual production, Artist Drama, audiovisual and Graphic Design, Music, Media Designer Art & Design and Event Organization of Noorderpoort Kunst & Multimedia.
