SnorriCam and Olympus EM-5 Create Paranoia in Short Film

Paul Trillo’s short film “The Irrational Fear of Nothing” follows one man through the streets of Manhattan as his stream-of-consciousness thoughts narrate his paranoid state.

The film’s unusual look came about by using a SnorriCam to strap the camera directly to the actor, creating a look that resembles that of a video game, explains Trillo in the behind-the-scenes video found below. Trillo chose the lightweight Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II for the task.

“I think this technique would be very difficult to do with a heavier camera,” says Trillo, “because the SnorriCam is literally on our main actor for the entire length of the film.”
