The Third Interval is named for Paul Virilio's writings on speed, the Internet, the human place on the electronic bullet train. Shot with my old Nokia cell phone, and mixed with Apple's GarageBand software, this is a low-tech homage to all the lives that are lived in between the spaces of the coming moments of communication over/under-load. Additionally, I was in the mood for letting the horror of everyday life surface for a few minutes - the confusion, noise, and the universe of near-hits that I often feel pulling at my heels. And one should remember that the horror movie is, most of all, create for the fun of it.
