I’m extremely proud to announce that my first feature film is on track to shoot in June. It’s a full length fiction film called For the Plasma, that I wrote and will be co-directing, and that stars two of the most beautiful, talented young actresses living. Our DP is Sean Williams, who lensed Frownland, Beetle Queen Conquers Tokyo, and The Color Wheel, and we’ll be shooting in Northern Maine on Super 16mm. We are the proud recipients of Panavision’s New Filmmakers Grant, and will be working on a very low budget.
The film is an arthouse sci-fi with a pataphysical premise and a distinct aesthetic somewhere between the digital and the pastoral. Our main touchstones are Ruiz’s The Territory, Kurosawa’s Charisma, and Olmi’s The Scavengers.
