The Tower Farm Interview, with yours truly about Psychotropica (and other things film related) LINK
"Damien Sage has taken tools available to just about everyone and created a film that’s provocative, engaging and considering it’s budget, visually stunning. As much as I love high-budget scifi, seeing a film like this depend on the actor’s performances and its writing, directing and sheer imagination is exciting, especially when the story is gay-themed." -Jasun, Gay Daily Hot LINK

Psychotropica Is Here!
This page is dedicated to our feature film debut "Psychotropica."
"Psychotropica" is a throw back to the experimental days of cinema. It is a complex film told primarily through imagery and sound. The film tells the story of a confused young man (known only as "The Patient") as he relates his dreams to a mysterious doctor. As The Patient's story grows darker and more twisted truths will be found, twists will be revealed and his story will reach a shocking conclusion.
I know it's talking a big game, but we do believe that "Psychotropica" is one of the most expansive no budget films ever produced (Don't believe me, check out the stuff below.)
Yes, it is true, the film is done (after 4 years, an intermission and, another long year of production!) Not only is "Psychotropica" finished, but we have also taken our love of Anime and over the topness one step further and, rotoscoped the film. That's right, "Psychotropica" is now a full on pseudo-anime itself! (The visual style is supposed to be indicative of the "childhood drawings" the lead character makes many references to in the film.)

(You can see a bit of the lovely pseudo-animated style!)
Psychotropica is a stylish homage to films like "The Wall" and "Tommy. A no budget throw back to the glory days of Brian De Palma and Dario Argento. And, an audio/visual sensory overload like none other committed to celluloid.
The film features a pulse pounding experimental/industrial score by RIP/TORN.
The is told in a fractured narrative. (Imagine having the most intensely over the top, emotionally and psychologically exploitive dream; then trying to describe it to someone after waking up.)
Psychotropica's style was also heavily influenced by Japanese Anime. In particular, the works of Satoshi Kon.
