“Use! Consume! Throw! … “Barcode” is the name of a scenario of rebellion against the erosion of values and the commodification of people in today’s consumer society, dominated by objects and substances. Evolving from experimental short film work to animation style, the script was able to keep its script happy by returning with awards from most of the festivals it competed in before being transferred to the white screen. Receiving the “Best Screenplay” award from thirteen of the twenty-three International film festivals is not an accidental success.
The festival Marathon, which started from the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Film Festival in India in 2019, ended with The ”Changing Face International Film Festival” taking place in Australia in 2020. The most notable among the” barcode ” short film script Competition Festival are those in the United States of America. ” New York Cinematography Awards (NYCA)” , “Best Screenplay Award”, “USA Hollywood International Golden Film Award” festivals, and screenwriter/director Hüseyin Urçuk; his award-winning script was transferred to the white screen.
