special effect (cinema edition)


Special Effect explores "The Zone", a space from Tarkovsky's film "Stalker" in which our normal rules of physics are suspended. We follow 3 men as they journey deep into this environment hoping to steal a glimpse of its rumored power. The fractured and spiraling narrative is traversed through a hypnotizing blend of live action and various digital animation styles. The soundtrack alternately drones and soars as we travel across an entrancing depiction of this fantastical space and spend time with the characters who have chosen to inhabit it. Stylistically drawing from many contemporary practices, My own work shifts between different visual styles while incorporating commissioned content from Brandon Blommaert, Jacob Ciocci, Billy Grant, Brenna Murphy, Yoshi Sodeoka, and Ola Vasiljeva.
