Director Biography - Tyrone Deise

A self-taught graphic designer, video artist and digital filmmaker; Tyrone Deise was born quite close to the geographical centre of North America, in the 'one great city' of Winnipeg to be specific. A complex and beguiling place that not only serves as his home, but as a major influence and source of inspiration.

With a strong distaste for repeating himself, he chooses to remain a moving target, constantly challenging himself to treat each project as a complete departure from everything before it. His goal is to create films of all types - from the real to the fantastic and from the accessible to the experimental.

Director Statement

With "Burnt on the Inside, Frozen on the Outside," I attempted to create an anti-music video through breaking the structural conventions of the medium. I used few cuts and plenty of dialogue - ultimately creating a hybrid of sorts. The concept of the narrative as well as the visual direction and tone are an homage to Andrei Tarkovsky's film, "Stalker."
