From the Film Maker

From I was initially drawn to the broody palette of the painting and the tension I felt seeing this horse as it awaited a rider. I began to think about the nature of the horse’s owner in conjunction with the apocalyptic tone I saw in the painting’s desolate skyline and bric-a-brac foreground. It became a portrait of the moment before the horsemen of the apocalypse rode out, and I wanted to supply the other half of the image – the horsemen’s preparations.
