A series of Dark Romanticism project film by Ugo Osmunds. 

 The characters in my Dark Romantics motion images were inspired by many short stories I wrote, when I was in high school. I've always been into art, and I was a huge fan of the Romanticism Movement, which was an artistic, literary, musical, and intellectual movement that originated in Europe towards the end of the 18th century. Some of my favorite Romanticism paintings are "Liberty Leading the People by Eugene Delacroix during the French Revolution era and "Napoleon Crossing the Apls" painting by Jacques- Louis David. I read a lot of poetry books from Edgar Allan Poe, The ability to explore the dark side of human nature. The human potential for evil, including the psychological effects of guilt, sin, and madness. The beauty inside the darkside of humanity. And I've always wanted to visually see what those characters I created in writings looks like, outside of my imagination. And getting into cinematography, which to me is all about motions and sounds, I have worked with people only interested in doing things that has never been done before. Working with amazing models, amazing stylists and my art directing dexterity... we made a lot of DARK ROMANTICISM.
