Each Time Again is a film that believes that viewers can engage in it’s story on many levels. Using the influence of classic science fiction films, Each Time Again brings a sense of eerie suspense with it’s timeless message. It’s use of long tracking shots, electronic enhancement of sound and the haunting score by Grammy nominated composer Matt Slocum of Sixpence Non The Richer sets the perfect mood the story to unfold. Each Time Again also compels the viewer to engage both sight and sound in a modern way to determine the outcome of this unusual story.

The idea of Each Time Again came through when Kip received 5 ideas from comic book writer David Malus for critique, and one peaked Kip’s interest as a potential first film for him.

As a fan of science fiction the appeal was immediate as the story reminded me of any number of classic Twilight Zone episodes and the idea of making a story based Sci Fi film rather than an effects based one was what I was looking for.

Gripping cinematography combined with an incredibly suitable pace give the film its sharpened sense feel. A mention to the wonderful attention to detail and textures in the decor that gives each shot a life of its own. It all comes together brilliantly in the unusual storyline.

In making Each Time Again I had several goals I wanted to achieve. First, I wanted to make something that reflected my style as a filmmaker. Second, I wanted to make something challenging where the viewer had a visual and aural puzzle to complete in order to fully understand the story. And finally, and this seems basic, I wanted to prove to myself I could take an idea from script to screen.
