TRIXELVISION‘s goal is to develop an experimental live trichrome camera system using three modified PixelVision cameras. The system will be aimed at performing displaced RGB colour channel separation in real time, and ultimately seek to create a unique style of experimental analogue video.
It is not the aim of this project to create perfect and seamless colour video from black and white video sources; rather to explore and aggrandize the idiosyncrasies of a transcendent image, suited for artistic expression and experimentation.

Mega Delta Force 9 (2011)
Top Ten finalist at the ABC’s At the Movies 25th Anniversary Competition.
Trailer for mock 80s police drama set on the streets of Melbourne, Australia.
Starring an electrifying performance by local actor, screenwriter and composer, Seamus Duffy.
A screenplay currently in its final draft, the feature-length work focuses on the stories of Melbournian disenfranchised housemates of the early 1990s.
The project takes form as an omnibus of eight 10-15 minute interconnected short films that play out the events of a 24-hour period. In each short film, we are introduced to a different sharehouse made up of youths with independent lifestyles, opinions, and philosophies that reflect the ideals of a generation trying to make sense of a senseless world.
The project endeavors to provide us with a window to the misunderstood, the disenfranchised, and the lost.
