. One stop on the winding road of cathartic need to blend passions, while attempting an educated statment, and almost-satire - into confused amusement. By taking the love I have for life-changing films, filmmakers and mashing it with the boisterous blackmetal aesthetic, I created something familiar - yet more confusing, the longer examined.

This fed our social media campaign - taking iconic scene from the directors and making a hard-cut right at a key moment, to a darker desaturated color scheme, heavy metal soundtrack and random explosions, of course. There's something interesting about a yearning to alter existing material to suit ones preferences, regardless of what those are. My concept's found a nice home; sandwiched between profound admiration for serious art and absurdist humor.  J
