Criteria One

I have always been a fan of unusual and multi-layered film title sequences and I wasn’t going to let the opportunity to create something special for Criteria One pass me by! The title sequence works on a number of different levels. On the one hand it serves to place you in both Superstar DJ Tim Chardie’s fractured state-of-mind while allowing an insight into the other main character of the film – The Collector.

Much of the story relies on an understanding of The Collector's internal conflict - his logical programmed ‘hardware’ side, at odds with his emotional ‘organic’ side. The Collector is able to form psychic connections with other animals he has been in contact with (dead or alive) through his ‘Psychic Cell’. Visually this ideas is represented throughout the film using different stylistic techniques, and the title sequence allows an opportunity to experience these ideas from the outset, switching point-of-view between these two different states.

From here the film ‘resets’, returning to a more traditional cinematic style of camera work and editing. An opportunity for a bit of calm before the storm…

'Criteria One' is my first feature film project and will be finished in March 2015. The film involves a combination of live footage and 3D animation/fx – all of which I have created myself. The story follows superstar DJ Tim Chardie - a.k.a 'Chardie Don't Surf' as he interact with a mysterious ancient 'visitor' who kidnaps his girlfriend and relentlessly stalks him. During his journey he finds himself encountering a bizarre and eclectic mix of creatures and situations - mermaids, talking boars, dinosaurs, ancient knights, talking skulls and to name but a few!

'Criteria One' contains some interesting fx and 3D animation and this channel contains video ideas, sketches and work-in-progress that charts this process. The latest showreel was created in April 2013 and provides a flavour of what to expect in the final film.

I have recently been working with composer Nick Stucke, who is currently finishing the music for the film. The story contains many music-related plot points, so it's great news to finally have a dedicated and motivated collaborator!
