Director Biography - Jonathan Nolan

A life-long fan of British science fiction and scientific romances, as well as being an equally passionate fan of H.P. Lovecraft, "Time Traveller" marks the start of an ongoing web-based serialisation and exploration of the combination of cosmic gothic horror from Lovecraft and steampunk adventure from H.G. Wells.

FUTURE, n. That period of time in which our affairs prosper, our friends are true and our happiness is assured.

7 Things You Should Know About TIME TRAVELLER (tm)

1. All effects, although digitally processed, begin as old school physical effects. The spaceships, figures, characters, explosions etc. ALL begin as model work, physical explosions or physical filming

2. Virtually all the models, miniatures and sets are recycled. At the end of use the sets and construction materials are recycled AGAIN, even if it is a case of using plastic recycling to create nurdles

3. As much filming and post work as possible is done in Timor-Leste to help start a film industry in that LDC (Least Developed Country)

4. There are countless little easter eggs - look out for the posters in Entry 1 and the computer readouts in Entry 8 for example!

5. The Morlocks in this adventure are created using a variety of models and effects to reflect the evolution of the creatures from industrial age humanity through an ape-like form to their final mutant shaggy "Biggerfoot" form and beyond

6. The trapezohedron the Time Traveller refers to is inspired by the Shining Trapezohedron from H.P. Lovecraft and the geometry references the NON-magical occult science of the "Dreams In The Witch-House" story by HPL

7. The Time Traveller begins his adventures in this production to go into the future to see the triumph of communal life (Communism) and the final evolution of Socialism. Does he see it? Is that what the Morlocks and the Eloi reflect?
