Short Film: “Notte Sento” by Daniele Napolitano

April 16th, 2011

If one enjoyed the Ethan Hawke, Julie Delphy vehicle Before Sunrise, that person would likely be somewhat familiar with and perhaps enjoy the below short film by Italian Daniele Napolitano.

The truly intriguing part of the film is that it was shot using stop motion and a high-end retail Canon digital camera. The end result is a bit hard to gauge. The cinematography is, at times, stunning; however, the flow of the film is a bit jarred by the nature of stop-motion photography.

One way or another, though the storyline is hardly novel, the ambition is very real and respectable. I don’t expect stop-motion short film making to take off, but it is most definitely worth a view.

Notte Sento (English subtitles) from Daniele Napolitano on Vimeo.

A girl misses her train to Milan and is set to wait overnight in Rome until dawn. However, a chance encounter with a guy changes her plans and the night lights of the capital turn into the background to a tender love story. An extraordinary chemistry made of knowing glances and small gestures fills the few instants that separate them both from the sunrise.

Short film made with 4500+ still photographs. Shot with a Canon EOS 30D camera.

Funded by the Seagate Creative Fund in 2008.
Italian language with English subtitles.
