IDFA DocLab Competition for Digital Storytelling 2016

16 – 27 Nov 2016 on IDFA

Director and found footage fanatic Bert Hana has been collecting home videos and answering machines for years. 
I Am Not Home Video is a virtual translation of a selection of answering machine messages and one very special videotape that Hana found in a second-hand store in France. In the video, someone is filming his house. It’s 2001, and there’s no one home. The person seems to be recording his house for posterity, or maybe for insurance purposes?

10th anniversary of IDFA Doclab

To mark the 10th anniversary of DocLab, Bert Hana and The Virtual Dutch Men, Purple Pill and Spook FM have transformed this French video into a 3D virtual world. Enter a virtual flashback to the end of an era and the beginning of a new one.
Like an archeologist, Hana points out the arrival of the brand-new Euro banknotes, the prosecution of Slobodan Milošević and the collapse of the Twin Towers.

The filmed house then unfolds around you in three dimensions, in the typical VHS colors.
‘Go ahead and look or even walk around. There’s an answering machine on the table in front of you. You may feel a sense of unease, and curiosity. But should you be listening to these messages?’
