Award-winning director Damien Lay's Semi colin is a well crafted exploration into a universal conundrum ... What is art and what is pornography? Semi colin challenges us to explore our inner self just as the acclaimed graphic novelist Colin Murray does ... for the first time in his life. Stimulating the intellect and providing the opportunity to explore one's own natural voyeuristic urges, the film delves deeply into the mind of the erotic illustrator. Part performance, part art and very much part social commentary, Colin Murray surfaces to philosophize on his life's obsessive work. And, just as Colin's lusty provocateurs emerge from the paper through quivering brush and pen, filmmaker Damien Lay coaxes the artist from the self-imposed shadows of his explicit imagination to delicately expose the blurry boundaries between eroticism and art. Colin Murray's art is considered by many to be among the best illustrative pin-up art that has ever been seen. His graphic novels are painstakingly drawn into life, panel by panel, taking around two years to complete each installment. Apart from his published novels, Murray's one-off pin-up art and illustrations have never been publicly exhibited. Semi Colin is a living, breathing art installation that challenges all notions of genre. To fully realize his perspective on Colin's art, director Damien Lay chose to film in 3:1 Ultra Widescreen aspect ratio, creating a visual experience unlike any other.
