We are very happy to present The Figment Notebook.
A new animated shortfilm by author and filmmaker Karim Ghahwagi with music by Mads Brauer & Casper Clausen of Efterklang and narration by Sara Davis.
The film was commissioned by c.sides for their project Audible Approaches for a Better Place and will only be online in December before it will make its debuts at film festivals in 2012.
Karim Ghahwagi and Efterklang used to work closely together in the years 2003 to 2005 where Karim directed several Efterklang music videos and also took an important role in the live concerts with his incredible video collages. Karim moved on to work with artists like Trentemøller and has recently also had his first book published.
The Figment Notebook brings Karim and Efterklang back together!
