a_peaceful_man_5Here’s what the audience had to say about A PEACEFUL MAN (moderated by Matthew Toffolo):

“Nicely directed film. Creates anticipation. Nice sound design too.”

“Amazingly paced film. Nicely choreographed. High angles. Slow motion. Terrific.”

“The contrast of rage while on screen with the peaceful voice over. Loved it.”

Directed by Harrison Norris

Beaten within an inch of his life, a peaceful man has a gruesome epiphany through violence.

Director’s Statement

Hi there, I’m Harrison Norris, the writer/director/editor/producer/etc of ‘A Peaceful Man’

The short was conceived from the concept that: no matter how rational or non-violent we see ourselves, under the right circumstances we are all capable of anything; whether we know it or not. The film is a fine slice of time, revolving around the exact moment the titular peaceful man, Harper, realises he is capable of monstrous things to save himself; and his transformation into a different man entirely.

a_peaceful_man_3The short was an entirely self-funded passion project, and required me to take up several months of stunt work in order to bring it, and its graphic novel adaption, to life.

I have always been strongly drawn to graphic novels so I enlisted Peter Pound to create an adaption of the film. Peter was the conceptual artist on Mad Max 4: Fury Road, and one of the men who helped kick-start the Australian indie horror comics movement in Australia, back in the 80’s, so it’s been a privilege sharing this journey with him.
