Making Love

A playwright with a dark past risks his life in returning to his home city to find out if a woman with whom he once had a passionate and illicit affair ever truly loved him, only to learn that it was only ever the unknowing and distance that kept their desire alive.


This noir featurette is based on an original script by Peter and offers a cinematic exploration of some central themes in his work.

We also created a 40 minute commentary to compliment the movie. This commentary exposes the philosophical and (pyro)theological architecture that houses the movie.

The movie and commentary were released to the kickstarter supporters and my top patrons in September 2018. On 22nd of November 2018 Making Love will be available to level 3> Patreon supporters (followed by the commentary on 23rd November). They should both be available to everyone by the beginning of 2019.
