Chris Folkens is the producer, director, and composer for the film TRIAD, shot on location at the University of Illinois. Mr. Folkens will be presenting the world premier of TRIAD on Friday, May 2nd, 2003 at 8:00pm and 9:00pm in the Armory 101 Theater. Admission is free and open to all.

TRIAD is the story of three friends who become caught in a web of mystery and deception created to hide a very dark truth.

University of Illinois students Carter Smithson (Adam Pasen) and his two romantically involved friends Angie Clemens (Hayley Maree Jannesen) and Jake Krups (Evan Dollard) find themselves questioning what they truly believe as unexplainable events begin to close in around them.

As the three friends finish up their semester, a certain tension begins to form among them over Carter's senior thesis on the irrelevance of religion in today's society. Blinded by their individual beliefs, they cannot realize the course of events set in motion before them, bringing them dangerously close to the ghostly presence that threatens everything they thought they knew.

Editing of TRIAD was completed using some of the facilities in the VMIL, primarily the digital video equipment, Final Cut Pro, and various DVD authoring environments.
