With this polymorphous 3D fiction film, Blake Williams continues the lines of aesthetic and philosophical inquiry he explored in his experimental shorts. Loosely and cryptically evoking the story of Orpheus, Prototype explores a range of proto- and meta-cinematic devices, experiments with Williams’ own inventive hybrid methods, and also makes technological and stylistic allusions to the multi-screen narrative design of Godard’s Numéro deux and the sculptural arrangement of monitors in the installations of video pioneer Nam June Paik.
