Director Statement

“I wanted to construct the narrative themes in a more challenging way, avoiding traditional structure in an attempt to create a visually and conceptually enjoyable style. Abstract enough to feel experimental and not overly cerebral in the delivery”.

“Visually it was important to employ familiar conventions, allowing the audience to enjoy the film but be a little challenged at the same time. Initially Jay (exec producer) challenged me to construct something around on of his bands more experimental tracks ‘Dying Program’. I expanded on the concept of programming, recalling I read once that ‘Alice in Wonderland’ was used as a tool for programming in mind control experiments in the 60s, so I started there and the project kind of evolved into something of its own. Some style inspirations came from classic action sequences and a shared admiration of classic anime and manga”.

So with gratitude I present ‘Triskelion’ for your consideration.
