Film notes

"The Risk not Taken" is a story about making the right decisions. Can one calculate the inherent risks of imminent decisions and take full responsibility for their outcome Should one be allowed to make decisions of this magnitude for others?

"The Risk not Taken" is the thesis-project of Alex Glawion, with which he graduated from the Freie Hochschule für Grafikdesign und Bildende Kunst Freiburg, Germany, in 2011. The production of the film lasted rougly 4 months, mainly using the 3D-Software "Blender".
During Preproduction, Alex Glawion considered how to best combine Art-, Story- and Experimental-Film to gain an enhanced result.
It was important for him, to produce a visually aesthetic and innovative, as well as, dramatic film, that remains with the viewer long after the short is over.
