About this video

Unlike Marlowe's Faust, in Goethe the Doctor, even if by now old, blind and damned, dies dreaming of a utopian city where humanity can live happily and in harmony. Precisely his abilityto dream and create, a totally human fire that burns inside him, will allow to save himself and defeat Mephistopheles whose only intent is to obtain the supreme nothingness. This short film pays homage to the visionary creativity of Ascanio Rodrigo who, with his brand Vyrus, manages to create technologically advanced works of Art but which are unique thanks to that human ardor that dreamed them. Technology itself often turns out to be the final achievement, but the true Artist manages to tame it as a tool. "FA {U} ST for Vyrus" is a tribute to the work of Ascanio Rodrigo and his ability to never stop, dreaming instruments capable of generating unique emotions. This short is intended as an introduction to a larger documentary in which Ascanio recounts his latest creation, Alyen, and the history of the brand. Created using the latest beta Unreal Engine 5 Technology and Lumen, the short is packed with many custom solutions, including fluid flip, point deform animations and with an extensive research through visuals. Settled in a metaphysic place, inspired by Cemetery of San Cataldo in Modena, the short is spoken in Early Modern English and inspired by Goethe's Faust ending.
