You’re placed in the passenger seat in a rowboat in the middle of the ocean. An old man, Joseph, is sitting in front of you, rowing. He tells you the story about the night he escaped the German soldiers, and how he fought to bring his family with him. As his story unfolds the sea dissolves, streets and people emerge and you sail silently through his memories. But as the dawn begins to rise, the question is; who will make it to the END OF NIGHT?
End of Night is an artistic mix of advanced technologies such as photogrammetry and volumetric video blended together into a collage-like 3D universe. The elements are realistic in their expression, but at the same time fragmented as scraps of a painful recollection.
