what is integral?

Seeking boundless, creative excellence, INTEGRAL continues to push forward, developing with each project, both technically and thematically. Refusing to force an idea, or to be crumpled by the pressure of time, our films are organically conceived, bearing the weight of authentic emotive influence, and are executed with precision, and purpose.
"stand perfectly still; watch the world wrap around you.
she is such a beautiful place -
and when things begin to falter and melt and crack and bend,
through uncertain moments,
nature reclaims that beauty -
every single time."
"based on the poem “broken pylons”, written by myself, RETROSPECTION is not only a portrait exhibiting a stark contrast between now and then; between words and pictures - above all else, this is acting as a gateway, invaluably thanking the exceptional individuals who used up a part of their limited time to shape my story." - M x

"trapped in this moment. forever,"
'goya' is a poetic-experimental short film, which Matthew W.F. Senior began creating at the age of nine. Released as a social experiment to merge the boundaries between reality and fiction - between film and every day life - this film was the metaphorical end to "Matt Senior" - the billing credit, the mental state, the emotional ties, the associations - allowing him to fully transition into the "Matthew W.F. Senior" persona. This picture is available to view for free on VIMEO.
"Memories are forever. I can't come back - but if you could see the view of Earth from up here,
you wouldn’t want to either.”
Written & Directed by Matthew W.F. Senior, 'william.' is a non-fictional eulogy film capturing the essence of his grandfather. This project sees William Henry Senior looking back at his life, and understanding how the world has changed around him.
Originally based on Senior's poem 'Home of Cold Rock', this project evolved into a "living photograph", so that William can be immortalised forever in the world of film. This is a very personal film, depicting William Senior as accurately as possible - from mannerisms, music choices and dialogue, to events depicted, hobbies, photographs and memories.
