After over ten years directing corporate advertising films, the time had come to embark on some personal projects. First, I directed two documentaries profiling artists whose ultimate craft is to shape and color our emotions and dreams. It was the success of both films on the festival circuit that gave me the confidence to direct Distortion. This project, though ambitious, is simply the fulfillment of a lifelong passion for genre film. To create the atmosphere of Distortion, I watched hundreds of films and took note of all the particular thrills and jolts that imbue genre film with its unique power to captivate viewers. The decision to use SFX makeup, a singularity photography was a nod to tradition and an homage to the horror genre. The original music is created by Gansùile (avant-garde industrial group) with sound recordings made in the set.
