My name is Nathaniel Fox-Pappas and I am a recent graduate (June 2009) of the Film Studies Program at Ryerson University. My main interests lies in creating short stories, screenplays and graphic novel scripts; my inspiration deriving from graphic novelists Alan Moore, Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello. In addition to the short films, “Behind the Bomb” and “An Inside Look At Tom Sleep I directed at Ryerson University I have created a number of short films for my own enjoyment. A comedic short film series titled "Optic Rigalou", a silent film titled “La Morgue Verre” set in Normandy, France. In late autumn 2010 I began to delve into the vein of medical experimental and surrealist short filmmaking. “ Diligent Prodigy” being the most recent artistically and enthralling piece as of late. It completes my first trilogy of surrealist short films. I have used my knowledge and experience of my physical condition to design surrealist films. Tim Burton is my favourite director of all time. Quentin Tarantino has also influenced me on my course as a young filmmaker and writer of fiction. I enjoy the political satire of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" as well as the hilarious claymation stop motion "Robot Chicken" and the outrageous minds behind "South Park". I feel I possess a remarkable visionary imaginative drive which enables me to become absorbed in the stories I write.
