Shut Up I’m Counting! / Felix Salut
The story of Shut Up I’m Counting! is set in a complex and erratic world. Tara and Ohio are trapped in a reality packed with symbols, systems and fragments. They don’t know how to escape from it. They are looking for the sign X to show them the EXIT. Guided by an Oracle that gives enigmatic directions, and distracted by a point that keeps devising new obstacles, they wind up in comical situations and embark on a turbulent adventure.
Shut Up I’m Counting! is a project that combines film, text and graphics. In the form of a film script with 32 scenes, Felix Salut plays with different ways of translating a film into a book. The script and stills are assembled from typographical symbols, transforming the fictional story on paper into a film which one would love to see in full length.
