Director Statement

Today, human influence can be felt in almost all of the world’s environments. Our electrical and technological infrastructure has become a vast web of wires that connects the rural to urban; the natural to the man made. Intersections is a single channel experimental short film that strings different environments together through the presence of human infrastructure and influence. The audience will go on a discovery of different settings, from the underground subways of downtown Toronto, to the sprawling fields of Centre Wellington. In each major location an electrical entity reveals itself. These animated individuals cross yet another narrative of intersection; the overlap of computer visual FX with real locations and footage. Everything that is computer animated is in part connected to the vast electrical grid that technology relies on. This thematic of intersections extends to make the animation self-referential of its computational character. All of the films locations, environments, and animation are strung together through this narrative of the natural world being intersected with technological influence. The audience is meant to be entranced by the audio-visual experience of this piece; they are to be at the mercy of the eerie atmosphere this piece evokes.
