Femme Chanel – Emma Fenchel
This work combines a Chanel commercial with various scenes from films starring Audrey Taotuo. The switching between black-and-white and color, the musical transition and the overall rhythm of the editing is formed to an homogenous video.

My name is Sarah Oos and I was born in 1994 in Wels, I graduated from High School for Artistic Design 2014; in October I started studying graphic and photography at the Art University Linz. I discovered my passion for video-making and graphic design over the course of various internships, including one at the YOUKI International Youth Media Festival.

“Femme Chanel – Emma Fenchel” is a found footage montage in which sequences from various other films are edited together in such a way that a new film is the result. Sarah Oos is the auteur of “Femme Chanel – Emma Fenchel.” To make it, she used scenes from a Chanel No. 5 commercial entitled “Night Train” and other films starring Audrey Tautou. “Femme Chanel – Emma Fenchel” is a manipulation on several levels,” according to Ms. Oos. “The video consists primarily of cuts interconnecting formally well-matched sequences from other motion pictures.

In order to manipulate on yet another level, I decided to employ only the original French soundtrack. Dialog between Emma and her lovers is made understandable to German-speaking viewers by means of subtitles, whereby there’s absolutely no connection between the spoken French and the written German.” This playful approach to cinematic reality already began with Sarah Oos’ naming of her chief protagonist: “Emma Fenchel is an anagram of Femme Chanel.”
