导演阐述 Director’s Statement

Double 讲述的是一个有关同性恋,三角恋的悲剧故事。影片总体的基调是阴暗的,隐晦的,这种气氛的渲染主要以演员的台词及动作表现、较多的特写、反差较大的光比及冷色调画面、较慢的镜头剪辑速度以及配乐来实现。

影片的主角Benson,鲜有话语,他在家中昏暗的灯光下给自己易妆以及杀害Samantha时慢条斯理的动作体现了他极强的条理性和令人发指的冷静,这些充分体现了Benson是一个内心严重扭曲,而一意孤行的人。

影片的剧本分为三场,其中第一场及第三场发生在Benson家中,少有对白,主要依靠精巧的镜头设置,演员的表演,以及后期配乐来铺垫、渲染和讲述情节。第二场发生在教室,拍摄时主要以还原真实的学校生活为主,同时在细节方面埋下伏笔,一天看似平凡的教学活动实则危机四伏,暗示有不详之事将要发生。

剧本中呈现的故事在现实中大抵不会发生。然而类似的三角恋以及Benson这样性格的人却绝不少存在,因此发生的争吵打斗乃至人身伤害也绝非耸人听闻。他们以自我为中心,不能很好的与周围的人和环境沟通,当这样的障碍越积越深最终使他们做出常人无法理解的变态行为。我们应该反思如何用科学的方法让社会去接纳这一部分人,这也是这部小品的现实意义所在。

Double is a tragic story about a gay love triangle. The overall tone of this short narrative is dark and obscure. The key elements rendering this atmosphere are the actors’ lines and performances, close-up shots, high contrast, cool color tone, and last but not least, music.

The protagonist, Benson, seldom speaks. He puts on makeup and kills Samantha calmly in dim lighting, a fact which indicates that this man is quite disturbed and has a seriously troubled heart.

There are three scenes in this short narrative. The first and third have little dialogue. To render the plot, it mainly relies on sophisticated camera settings, actors’ performances and music. The second scene takes place in a classroom. Its main task is to present what looks like ordinary teaching activities. A day of seemingly mundane teaching activities, however, is actually a suggestion of danger.

The story presented in the script probably will not happen in reality. However, similar love triangles and character like Benson , definitely exist. They are self-centered and cannot communicate well with people and the environment around , when such obstacles piled they will behavior abnormally and eventually make the creepy move. We should work on how to use scientific methods to make this small part of people to embrace human society, and this is where the meaning of this story lies.)
