On the monitor. Train. Bridge. After Effects. Render.


Grinder Tool & Die - the studio where From Inside is being made. Yep, that's it: a single G5, Dual 2.7. You're laughing now, but a few years ago, when the film was started that machine was the top of the heap.

This is also the studio where most of the music I've made over the past 10 years was recorded. Yes, that's it: a single Ensoniq ASR10. You're laughing now, but a few years ago when -- never mind.

...although, this, I swear, was recorded in Ibiza, Dublin, and Brooklyn

...and this was sort-of recorded all over the place, too.

Okay, I exaggerated about recording so much in this little studio. But this graphic art stuff was absolutely all made at Grinder Tool & Die.

The From Inside short film will be screening at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival, October 19-25, 2007.

The From Inside short is a 9 minute film which serves as introduction to the From Inside feature length story. Working with the first 15 minutes or so of the feature length film, I cut together a piece that stands alone. It doesn't give much away in terms of the feature-length story, but it serves as a great introduction to From Inside: the visual language, the characters, the world...

I am very excited and pleased to announce that we have found the voice of Cee.

Corryn Cummins.

Corryn brings to the role a perfect sense of sadness and persistence, of softness and strength. There is only one character in From Inside who speaks; Cee. The emotional weight of the entire film rests on one voice. Corryn carried this weight with heart-stirring quiet ease. She is Cee.

We recorded voice this past weekend in LA at Titmouse Studios.
