Director Statement

This film originated as a show reel piece for the main actress in the film, from a cooperative film group. It began as a play on the movie Dark Star, and the idea of talking to a thinking bomb. Sensing it had parallels with terrorist activities and ISIS suicide bombers originating from Syria at the time, a deeper script presented itself instead and the piece was extended from three minutes to just over 14 mins, due to persistence and the will to see it come to light.
The film group got involved over a two and a half day shoot. As the piece was written and story boarded, and organised with a 1st AD and cameraman to a very fine degree, it was not the filming that was hard (with some obvious hold ups, like an illegal church gathering striking up above us half way through a days filming). The real struggle was to take the footage from being filmed to creating believable effects to match it. An odyssey of hard work to finally craft a piece of futuristic film poetry,
