A short film by Oton Bačar




During a warm summer night, a little boy in his jammies wanders through the streets of an old, mediterranean town, his ultimate playground. Curiosity leads him to a small town square where he encounters two beautiful statues, a young man and a young woman, who become the heroes of his imagination. The boy challenges the male statue to a sword duel not knowing he is about to witness a miracle that will affect his life forever.




Motus is a passion project of two friends, a young Slovenian director Oton Bacar and art director Voranc Kumar, who concieved the idea for the film back in 2013.  Both having a background in visual effects they wanted to create a short tale that would combine aesthetic visuals, powerful instrumental music and dance performed by their friends Nika Burazer and Žiga Jurečič. Niklas Aman composed the original music score in early development of the film which became the main guideline for the team. Since the story is placed in an imaginary world, the film had to be shot in the sound stage entirely.  Oton and Voranc spent more than a year working on visual effects with an extra help from few digital artists. The project was completed in June 2016 and is currently running for festivals.
