Everyone knows “Alice in Wonderland” right? Well, you've not seen it done quite like this before! Shot on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, this 15 minute short is quite an achievement. You can learn more about this movie at AliceAndTheWhiteHair.com
From the movie's Cinematographer David Myrick comes this writeup:
“Lewis Carrollâ€™s timeless novel â€œAliceâ€™s Adventures in Wonderlandâ€ has been reinvented and adapted countless times since its original publication in 1865. Now, nearly 145 years later, writer and director Wyatt Denny has transformed the story into a brilliantly, visually imaginative film with metaphorical transformations and mature variances, allowing adults to re-experience the story once again. Infused with psychedelic imagery and avant-garde dogma â€œAlice and the White Hairâ€ is one of the most original and modern interpretations of the classic novel cinema has yet to experience.
While loitering outside a local liquor store, Alice and her friend Dinah are approached by the White Hair and Griffin. After deciding to join the two strangers on a car ride, Alice is offered a blue-lit pill that begins to have visually mind-altering effects.
Alice suddenly awakes bound by chains in a dungeon-like basement, which proves to be just the beginning of her adventure through darkness and mysteÌ€re. Through the guidance of the White Hair, she engages in a game of Russian Roulette with the Queen of Hearts, in the company of the King, Ace of Spades, Griffin, and her forgotten friend, Dinah.
Set into a trance of falsely believed death, Alice loses consciousness and slips into the depths of her own mind, full of more visions that foresee her potentially devastating future.
Paving the way as an original Acid House film, â€œAlice & the White Hairâ€ is a fantastical trip down the nebulous rabbit hole to a wonderland only found in the darkest of nightmares.”
I'm not sure I've ever seen anything quite like this!
