PHAGIA

(Art project - Short film/Catapult Film)

An art film/short project I initiated at Catapult Film after being inspired by the amazing low-brow painter Michael Hussar. I have several of his paintings decorating my office and I have always wanted to do a tribute of sorts. With the assistance of the crew at Catapult, we created this somewhat disturbing piece.
