Director Statement

As a filmmaker I’m fascinated by the spaces in between dreams and waking and how this can become a place to tell stories and experience ideas in a way that can that can plumb the depths of a viewer’s psyche. We all dream and inhabit the world of surrealism and symbolism nightly. I want to translate this experience through evocatively visual storytelling, exploring tales that are at once universal and at the same time, strangely unique.

“Emergence of a hybrid human-alien consciousness from the void”

APEX explores the emergence of a higher life form, the convergence of intelligence and higher consciousness in the primordial void of infinite potential. A portal through which something greater and far more malevolent has emerged.

This conceptual film was inspired by a love of the ‘Alien’ franchise and the work of H.R Giger. I wanted to explore the Alien concept set in a future abstraction. We witness a genetic hybrid emerging from the void, composed of the alien and human DNA. The creature: a biological zenith represents the pinnacle in biological evolution and higher consciousness, the being represents balance, a queen and creator, the APEX of being.

I employed symbolism to build a subtext, using light (illumination) that symbolises the beginning or awareness or consciousness, the cube (structure) that represents the totality of human intelligence, alongside the blackness in both liquid and solid form to represent the void.

Director Statement

 

Nothing brings a family to together like pregnancy, and nothing tears it apart like jealousy. This the foundation of PRENATAL, two sisters struggling to find the truth and someway to understand eachother, despite being seperated by mountains of beleif and resentment. Prenatal inspired by my friend (and lead actress)’s first pregnancy and the red state / blue state divide. Sara was actually 8 months pregnant when we shot the film!
