director's statement

 

Cerulean Blue is a thesis on love, loss, and all the things in-between. It is the outcome of my own personal experiences tackling depression, obsession, regret, and isolation in my early twenties. During this incomprehensible time in my life, the development of Cerulean Blue was something that helped me overcome my inner- demons and helped me challenge myself not only creatively, but emotionally.

Alex’s story is one that I am personally connected to and his journey speaks to me on both a spiritual and emotional level. Cerulean Blue’s significance comes at a time when both male and female clichés are being challenged in the film industry and throughout the world. It challenges both clichés as well as raises questions regarding whether we can truly overcome our own darkest instincts or simply learn to deal with them as they hide in the background. My film is universal in theme but unique in its presentation and as my debut feature film it is very close to heart.

Cerulean Blue is a product of collaboration with many talented young filmmakers from Melbourne, each who put in their hard time and effort into getting my film made to the best and most efficient way possible on a shoestring budget.

My hopes are that audiences will have different interpretations of what the film’s message is and what they gained from the experience of watching it. It’s a unique indie comedy/drama and is something new to come out of Australia.

Adrian.
