Dining room or there is nothing
Of all the films I have made, perhaps the most obscure one has had the largest impact. "Dining Room or There is Nothing" instantly went viral in the pre YouTube days, with more than 3 million downloads. Since then, it has been viewed in excess of 10 million times, and usually appears in any "top 10" lists of creepy or scary videos or films. It has been an enormously entertaining experience reading the many conspiracy theories written about it, and to watch it gain in popularity steadily over time – something of a rarity in YouTube films, I think. The film flips back on itself. At exactly the midway point, the film begins to run backwards, and the sound repeats itself backwards with it. The character, speaks the three words backwards as the film goes forwards, so that they can be deciphered at the end of the film when they are played backwards. When looped, there is no actual beginning or end, and no real sense of where the beginning and end actually are. This piece was inspired by a personal paradoxical desire for empirical proof that there is nothing on the 'other' side of life. I wanted to blur the distinction between the two states, and to state the paradox by showing someone who is coming back from life (or death), and denies its existence, thereby fulfilling the paradox.
