This is dedicated to Ken Russell, whose films about the composers Gustav Mahler and Franz Liszt among others led me to attempt a gonzo biography of my own. Granted mine's only six minutes long and wants for Russell's astonishing ambition but I was limited by a number of things. Give me a few years and a comparable budget I'll produce something that will make his films seem positively tame by comparison. Thank you to my cast and crew, especially Tucker Johnson, who has lifted giant cameras for me more times than I care to admit and he's done it for the first bite of a dark chocolate Milky Way bar. So, I owe him one, to say the least. Please enjoy The Colossus, shot on 16mm and HD.
