I wanted to combine completely different designs that are necessary to each other. Human design and Architecture sturctures. An example I had threw the making of this film was a giant rocket all round and pointy being attached to a rocket metalic launcher. Very different designs but both need each other to make
sense until they separate.
Seroussi's work is about exploring new formats and processes. He often creates his own filming tools and has a passion for both current and obsolete technologies. One of the things that makes his work unique is that he uses creative manual techniques during shooting rather than adding effects in post-production; this gives his work a timeless analog feel that distinguishes it from the current media climate. A firm believer in the magic of collaboration, he established solid relationships with leading designers, art directors, cinematographers, choreographers, and musicians. With complex choreography, innovative editing, and manual filter techniques, Seroussi's music video for Keren Ann and his experimental film "Divine Proportions" (presented by nowness.com) are perfect examples of his ability to harness the creativity of his collaborators while bringing his own creative vision to the forefront.
