This is a short film that aims to explore the strange, hallucinogenic aspects of workout culture. I like working out and going to the gym, but have always felt out of place and a little bit absurd about the culture. But I also kind of find that same strangeness of the culture kind of charming. I hope this can come across in the piece. The story needs work, as it doesn't feel like it's "hanging together" yet, so I would like to hear how you think it feels, what is missing that would make it more satisfying for you the reader.
I am a Canadian director going to camera Oct '22 on my first official short film that I have written and directed. Very pleased to meet you, feel free to connect with me on instagram (@johnnystagram) and share your work. I LOVE to read others work and talk and connect on creative conversations so don't hesitate to reach out.
I have been making music, photos, videos since I was a teenager in the small city of Halifax, NS, Canada. I went on to be a TV producer, but have since focused a lot more of my attention to directing documentary pieces for the web. All the while writing and honing my craft.
My goal is to become a master storyteller across platform and genre. more...
