”the greatest experimental film I have ever seen. Such an edge of your seat mystery that keeps you guessing at every turn. There are not many directors that could bring something like this to life” (Olympus Film Festival judges on Platonic).
“A complex cinematographic experiment [which] contains a series of [...] symbolic elements that create correspondences with oriental spirituality or ancient philosophy [in a way that] would be useless to [fully] examine here since its magnetic atmosphere is implicitly fed by the intertextual symbiosis of these components. It is quite difficult to sum up the epic consistency
of this project” (The Monthly Film Festival on Platonic)

through the looking glass of an award winning visual storyteller
May 2019 | art, film, biography and media tie in
This book follows four of the surreal genre bending short films via their screenplays and related media of award winning visual storyteller David Leidy (Best Director, Best Film Noir, Best Cult Classic and Best Postmodern Film award winner).
Look through the lens of the storyteller himself by following him from early writing stages in preproduction to the final stages of postproduction, festival circuits and promotion with reviews, awards, permits, contracts, writer and director notes and so forth included throughout.
The end features an extended never before released article about the making of his film Atonia and how indie filmmakers with little to no experience can jumpstart their fully fledged careers as writers and directors.
