It's an absolute joy to announce that Salvation Comes has been nominated for 5 awards at this year's Asia Web Awards! We're up for Best Screenplay Action & Horror, Best Creator Action & Horror (David Mahler), Best Director Action & Horror (David Mahler), Best Actress Action & Horror (Francesca Waters) and Best Horror & Experimental.
This is the first time I've been up for an award for Salvation Comes, it really means so much. As always a huge congratulations to all the other nominees, and a big thank you to the staff and volunteers of the Asia Web Awards. What an honour!
Directed and choreographed a music video back in March for Canadian musician Doug Hoyer. Performance artist Cool Gaia performs a Butoh dance piece to encapsulate the silent scream of a sentient computer program. More info in the video's description.
I recently did a little interview with Zoe from The Suburban Review about the thoughts behind my recent cover illustration and my art practice. You can read the review here

Was sent a stack of pics from this year's Digital Graffiti festival in Alys Beach, Florida. Check out their facebook/insta, so many bind bending pieces from all over the world projected in heaps of different, creative ways! I feel very lucky to have had Cosmic Echo be a part of this year's festival, can't wait to make it in person one year.
