About   the   movie

Toward the end of 2005, I dipped my toes into some experimental filmmaking. Taking an abstract poem I had written a few years earlier, I resculpted it to work as visual poetry. It's a snapshot of the random thoughts I constantly have; questioning the nature of the world and how we live and die.

The footage was shot over a day walking around the town of Dandenong, a boiling pot of culture mismatches. I then spent a day editing and creating the effects for it.

I was never really happy with the end results and even looking at it now, I cringe at certain aspects. One day I'd like to revisit this style of filmmaking. With my skills now and updated views on life and the Universe, I should be able to come up with something far better.
