The Deep is online!

Alex Haworth's beautiful and steampunkian short film, "The Deep," is finally available for viewing on Vimeo!

The Deep from Dada Factory on Vimeo.

Al's film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008.There's some beautiful stuff here, I love the spinning cogs of the press and the elevator.

This film really typifies my perception of Al as a filmmaker. Seemingly out of nowhere, in a rush of a few weeks, he says "I want to make a film this month." Suddenly he's securing locations and spending money on the sets, and next thing I know he's made something entirely his, entirely beautiful. He spent much longer preparing it privately, of course, but it was still quite amazing to see how quickly Al can materialize his visions.

Incidentally, Al has just written another spotlight over at the Dada Press,this time on the diverse verbal world of Makena Walsh. Check it out: The Illusion of Geometry.
