LOKI’S GAME | Short Film Editor


A fusion of kinetic choreography with narrative storytelling starring Axel Nu and Andrew Lyle-Pinnock. Selected for the British Urban Film Festival in the ‘Arthouse’ category. A Supple Nam/Johan Nayar Film which was also edited by Johan Nayar.

Set in a urban environment, Loki, the God of Mischief, descends to play his games. He manifests himself in a human form during a fight between two men, portrayed by the talented Axel Nu & Andrew Lyle-Pinnock. Loki starts to change the dynamic of the fight from something aggressive to something more surreal. The film explores physical movement in through a unique lens with an equally distinctive soundtrack.

This is the first collaboration between Supple and Johan which is a visceral, visual and sonic experience. Supple has worked with many acts as a choreographer including names such as the Chemical Brothers. He met Johan through a mutual friend and they decided to co-direct a short film together. It fused Supple’s choreography skills with a loosely narratives storyline. Loki’s game is the result.

Original Concept

The film began with a set of visions from Supple Nam which was adapted into a narrative structure by Johan Nayar. This creation of structure occurred both at the conceptual level as well as through the editing process.
