Multiplex - a comic strip about life at the movies

“The Mountain” by Terje Sørgjerd

I often think of film (and comics) as a narrative medium, but every once in a while, something comes along to remind me that it’s not; it can be bigger than that, broader than that. It can be art.

“The Mountain,” a three-minute long, juxtaposed sequence of time lapse photography paired with a gorgeous piece of music from Ludovico Einaudi (whose music was used so incredibly well in Shane Meadows’s 2006 masterpiece This Is England), is simply breathtaking. It certainly generates a powerful emotional reaction that neither the images nor the music on their own would.

Check out Mr. Sørgjerd’s “The Aurora” over at Vimeo, as well. You can like TSO Photography on Facebook or follow him on Twitter.
