filmmaker's note
Cannonball is a conceptual docu-fiction film, following Singaporean art rock band ARE on their album tour through Australia, featuring performances by other acts in Australia’s experimental music scene. The first self-produced feature film by a Singaporean band, the film was based on the music of the Cannonball album and the album was based on the film that was to be made on the tour. It is an exploration into presenting and creating work in unreality and the subconscious.
