Intervew With Neverlost Writer/Director Chad Archibald
Initially, I was somewhat wary of Chad Archibald’s Neverlost, the Guelph-shot genre film premiering at Fantasia tomorrow. After all, its story of a failed screenwriter living in squalor while struggling with insomnia and depression sounds like a documentary about my early twenties, except with fewer Star Trek conventions.
But the film ended up being an inventive, well-constructed exploration of the tension between fantasy and reality, livened up by humour in just the right places, and a melancholic tone that adds depth without being oppressive. Here’s an interview I did with writer/director Chad Archibald.
