Darcy Gladwin
b. October 7, 1971, Auckland, New Zealand.

BIOGRAPHY:    Darcy Gladwin is an inter-media artist with an extensive background in design, photography and music. After working in the communications and advertising industry Darcy migrated to filmmaking alongside composing and performing cross-genre music. 

Godplex (in post-production) is his debut feature film, a tragi-comic narrative exploring anxiety, delusion and disillusionment and concludes what might be best described as a psychological cinematic interrogation of identity, diffusion and the psycho-technological interface.


CRITICAL OVERVIEW:   Cinema as art is what I'm interested in and after years of experimentation, inspiration never fails to step in and provide an opportunity to explore, learn and refine some more.

That's what I love about the medium, I won't be stopping any time soon ...
