The Iris Echo - A Dystopian Thriller
A secretive and ruthless totalitarian state ruled under the iron fist of the beloved 'Dear Leader'.
Hermes, a low ranking state 'Reader' is invisible like most of the working class. Growing increasingly frustrated with the hardship of her existence, she begins to question the truthfulness of her broadcasts to the nation.
Roaming the airwaves in search of answers, Hermes is lead down a dangerous path . . .
. . . sealing her fate and sowing the embryonic seeds of revolution.
A pilot made for development into a TV series, The Iris Echo is a Totalitarian Thriller that holds up a mirror to divisive politics, populist rule, misinformation & fear.
I’m indebted to Producer Clea Singh & Envy Post Production for their unrivalled finishing.
A big thank you to colourist Vicki Matich for her wonderful grade, Josh Campbell & Bob Jackson for the incredible mixes & to Sacha Walker for his cinematic sound design.
The beautiful end titles, brought to life by my bud Pete Hambling & the operatic military score by James Jones are outstanding.
I want to thank producer Mark Sutherland whose undying belief gave me the support needed to push the boundaries to create the music, end titles & finish the film to such a high standard despite the tiny budget. It was worth the blood sweat and tears!
I’ve storyboarded expansive additional scenes from dream sequences to the suppressed masses in The City to be finished on further development.
