Guy Maddin is a Canadian filmmaker.
The KEYHOLE PROJECT started out of frustration I experienced trying to find within any of my movies a single central image strong enough to go directly onto a movie poster. I was always happy with the overall look of my films, but I began to lament the absence of an iconic, unforgettable shot. So, I promised myself I would start my next script, not with so many words, but with images -- strong, original compositions -- instead.
My collage party doyen friend Paul Butler assembled for me an exciting group of extremely gifted Canadian artists -- Michael Dumontier, Shari Boyle, Simon Hughes, Brad Phillips, Jeff Funnell -- and with them we set out to make images based on a simple two-sentence outline of my next movie's story. These wonderful collage pieces are the result!
