It's with great pleasure that I share with you our new 70's inspired painted poster.

The poster was painted by the amazing Takashi Hilferink. We've always loved Takashi's art (which you can check out here https://thilferink.wordpress.com/) and so when he approached us with the idea of doing a retro poster for Komatose, We immediately said yes!

Please enjoy!

Komatose Synopsis

Nostalgia is a drug in the cinematic fever dream of Komatose.

When Perry (Andrew Pigott) is presented with the opportunity to re-experience his most treasured memories through an experimental narcotic called Komatic, the lines of his reality soon begin to blur and give way to a nightmarish path of self-destruction.

Bolstered by an unrelenting tension and unflinching honesty, the genre-bending world of Komatose depicts a dark and hypnotic cautionary tale for the insta-culture, as experienced by a man unable to cope with his deepest and most troubling obsessions.

Living in the past has never felt so real.

Meet the Team

Mark Boucher Director/Producer

After graduating from B.C.I.T. technical film program in 2005, Mark Boucher soon found himself working in the corporate/commercial video industry, gaining a strong technical background in all facets of production. His spare time was spent building a creative momentum winning several 48/72hr film competitions as a writer/director/producer.

Feeling a strong desire to move towards long form narrative work, Mark simultaneously moved into the field of education where his fascination for human behaviour led him to becoming a behavioural interventionist.

At the same time he continued to move forward developing larger scale projects and short film festival entries. Mark is excited to put his passion and skill sets to use with his directorial debut of "KOMATOSE."

Marc-Andre Miron Producer/Infernal Trio Entertainment

Marc-Andre Miron was born and raised in the small town of Green Valley, Ontario.  Living in a quiet, rural setting, Miron developed a vivid imagination and an acute sense of creativity to escape his mundane surroundings.

This eventually led to Marc-Andre becoming actively involved throughout his youth and adulthood in theatre groups and film productions.

In 2005, he had the opportunity to write and direct his first feature length film, Corporate Kidnapping.  Since then Marc-Andre has become an award-winning writer, director and producer, striving to create projects that both challenge and interest him.

Andrew Johnston Writer/Executive Producer

After moving from Yellowknife at age 6, Andrew spent his formative years in Owen Sound, Ontario where he recognized and cultivated what has become a life-long passion for the creative arts. As suggested by his 6th grade English teacher's assessment that he read Dostoyevsky's Crime And Punishment, Andrew has always been attracted to dark and challenging material, particularly the lurid provocations of Brian De Palma, David Lynch and Bret Easton Ellis.

Following the completion of his Bachelor of Commerce degree at Carleton University, Andrew moved to Vancouver where he spent his 9-to-5's working within the Health Care Industry as a Disability Management Professional, while taking his first steps toward applying an impulse for creative writing through contributions to local counterculture publication, Abort Magazine. His experience in Vancouver also inspired the writing of his first feature length screenplay, Komatose.

Concluding that it was time for change, 2013 saw Andrew parting ways with his first career and relocating to Toronto in pursuit of a life dedicated to filmmaking. Since his move, Andrew has made a successful transition into writing and directing for television, in addition to completing a short-film screenplay (currently in pre-production in Germany), and nearing completion of his second feature-length screenplay, Nighthawk Jungle.
