导演阐述 Director’s Statement
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.）
