Signalstarr is Nick Stewart Hoyle.
A London based graphic artist, and self proclaimed visual traverser of the etheric.
His work explores themes of retroist nostalgia fused with futurist vistas, digital spirtualism and mystic psychedelia.
Escapism serves as chief catalyst for his process, and takes the viewer on a journey swathed in analog textural washes.
In “Interval”, we follow a nameless man in a world left in ruins after a major earthquake. As we watch the film, “Interval” invites its audience to contemplate on the relationship between memory-time-space, photography-video and the concepts of mobility and immobility. It is in this particular context, “Interval” commemorates Chris Marker’s pioneering masterpiece, La Jetée (1962).
It was extremely important for “Interval” to have an influential and lasting cinematographic audio-visual impact on the viewer. For this reason, the post-production lasted almost a year.
Alper Sarıkaya acted as the Digital Art Director and Visual Effects Supervisor who spent more than several hundred hours to paint, detail and construct every shot, frame by frame while Murat Gülbay who was in charge of Sound Editing and Sound Mix, created a detailed and sophisticated sound design.
“Interval” is written and directed by Hüseyin Mert Erverdi who also acted as the DOP and the editor of the film. “Interval” has two actors: Tan Arcan, who played the nameless man and Nuray Işıklı who played the little girl.2 hearts

Then his great father’s mother clasped him round
With clinging arms: she kissed his shoulders broad,
His head, his breast, his bearded lips she kissed,
And Acamas kissed withal, the while she shed
Glad tears on these who could not choose but weep.
