Triptych premiered on a rooftop in Tribeca on September 26, 2009. This short film, directed, written, and edited by Dana Variano with the generosity of the Screen Actor's Guild, explores the lives of three 30-somethings trying to find their way through life in New York City.
It was written from a realist perspective, and shot using as much natural light and diegetic sound as possible in order to enhance that effect. The music for this video was written by Denver Dalley, of "Statistics" and "Desaparecidos." Artists Mike Sgambati and John Kotch Jr. have written “E/Utopia,” which featured as Derek’s favorite song.
Starring Abby Lee, Sam Dingman, and John Patrick Hayden.
