Director’s statement

Kyle Sandilands and Rory James Wood say:

“With the exception of the music, Catalyst was written, produced and edited in 72 hours.

We wanted to do a short that told a story visually using a single master without coverage, while looking at the way a director such as Hitchcock might use the camera to build suspense.

With a two-person crew and the three actors, we shot the film one afternoon and, after about a dozen takes later, nailed it.”
