Slowmotion shots, low zooms and a mysterious soundtrack combined create the tense intro for ‘Let the fire burn’. When we are first shown an actual fire, three narratives are being showed. The three stories develop as a mosaic narrative which is soaked in dream logic. The sensation and feelings felt by the athletes are, more than the realistic representation of the sport, the focus point in ‘Let the fire burn’. This choice is made in order to make the viewer experience what the athlete goes through. The lighting and soundtrack are designed to strengthen the dream logic. De lighting leaves plenty of space for darkness and the soundtrack combines classical elements with modern synths.
