Almaz is also an attempt to make a film in a different way, involving the audience from the earliest stages as real creative partners.
We asked seven artists to each create a fragment of a life: Natasha’s Myspace page, Karina’s secret photographs, Marat’s possessions, The Mirror’s triptych, and more.
Next, we invited our audience to visit www.see-almaz.com to view these fragments – and to use that experience to understand our characters.
And the submissions that we received had a real effect on the final product – because we ran this experiment before filming began.
These creative efforts changed the script.
