Adaptations of HP Lovecraft’s work have always been problematic. The qualities that make his writing affective and powerful stem from his word choice and phrasing. Rather than attempt to fully adapt a single story this project uses three Lovecraft short stories and combines chosen elements to create an original story line. This takes the form of an exploratory journey through a city left to decay in humanity’s absence, however, a lone haunted man remains, watching the city crumble from his office window. Through poetic voice-over, dramatic detailed scenery and environment this project evokes that indistinct and grimly beautiful Lovecraftian atmosphere.
