BULLET TIME weaves the stories of FOUR characters as they confront their identity within the walls of a rundown highway motel - a transient place for those passing through on their way to somewhere else, or running from something they have left behind.
A young WOMAN sits in an armchair, a cigarette streams from her fingertips as she commands the flash of a camera. A scrawny man dances seductively to its tune. She is frozen. Elsewhere.
A runaway BOY is shadow boxing in his room. His fists break the air, a rage withheld. He lay on his bed the roof staring back. His chest rises and falls. He begins to weep.
An OLD LADY checks boxes on a scrap of paper as a small TV blares game-shows back at her. Curtains drawn, she watches the clock. Expectantly.
A MAN dressed in a dinner suit answers a knock at the door. Two strangers tie him to a chair. Violence. He glances at the Holy Cross on the wall.
A highway motel speaks to ideas of privacy and escape, spaces where temporary guests can find resignation, displaced from their past lives in search for something new. The struggle of these individuals speaks to a primal need that every human has, the need to feel connected.
Through it’s varying tempo and dynamic melodies, BULLET TIME has a strong narrative quality to it. The songs pensive tone and powerful instrumentation will not only work harmoniously with the action on screen, but heighten the stories of each character to something very compelling and real.
In 2016 I graduated from Sydney Film School with a Diploma in Screen & Media where I was heavily involved as a Writer, Director and Cinematographer on numerous projects. My thesis film THREE30 saw success at festivals both within Australia and internationally, and assisted me to work professionally across various roles. I worked as an Assistant Editor on Jackie Chan’s BLEEDING STEEL upon leaving film school, and with companies including SBS, Adidas, McDonalds and Uncle Toby’s. I have also been involved with music videos for artists like Oly Sherman, DMA’s and Ngaiire.
I am currently in my final semester at the University of Technology Sydney completing a Bachelor of Communications (Media Arts & Production) and continue to seek out unique and engaging stories to tell on screen.
I am passionate that this is my NEXT PROJECT and would love to share it with you.
