The Deadline is my second year film from Calarts. It is heavily inspired by the writings of Latin American surrealist writers Jorge Luis Borges and Julio Cortazar. I was exposed to their works while I was studying Latin American Literature at the Ohio State University before attending Calarts. As usual the story went through many phases before reaching the one that was made, its was far trippier before and maybe a little less comprehensible, believe it or not. The final outcome ended up being a competition of sorts between the two writers as to who can finish their books.
