"Wind it up" was freely inspired by "Autopsychography", a poem by Fernando Pessoa.
This shortfilm is a creative approach about the racionalization of feelings. Ultimately, one ends up not feeling at all, unable to distinguish between what is real and what is not. We become disconnected from the others, but mostly, from ourselves.
"Wind it up" (A Corda), was made in 48 hours, as our team's submission to the "48 Shortmedia"* competition. Every participanting groups, composed by an average number of five elements, had to make a shortfilm (from the script to its final form), a poster, 10 promotional photos, and a website about their project.

by Fernando Pessoa
The poet is a faker
Who's so good at his act
He even fakes the pain
Of the pain he feels in fact.
And those who read his words
Will feel in what he wrote
Neither of the pains he has
But the one they just don't.
And so around its track
This thing called the heart winds,
A little clockwork train
To entertain our minds.
