Realising a Vision

The film’s writer and director Henrik Pilerud draws upon his experience both as a filmmaker, and more recently as a costume maker and designer in order to create a world inhabited by more than just humans. During the last two years the team of talented professionals working both behind and in front of the camera has expanded considerably. The first scenes were shot at the onset of 2018 and editing started later that winter. The goal for early 2020 is to secure further financing in order to complete production and wrap the film for a possible release later in the year.

This story takes its characters into the unknown where all sorts of strange and unpredictable things can happen. And just as life is known to imitate art, this actual production may well take it’s players on a journey through similar twists and turns before our journey is complete.

Call of the Unseen

This is kind of where we are at the moment. Looking into the far distance, wondering when we will have completed our production. It is a gigantic undertaking, making a feature length film. Especially when it is self financed, when the team is small and lots of different tasks fall upon a small group of people.
But we are moving forward. Not always as fast as we would like, but as fast as time and circumstance allows. Eventually, we will have reached beyond that distant horizon.

Work is moving forward! Planning for the continued filming this fall is in progress.
During the summer the focus has been on editing all the material we have this far, which amounts to about one hour of the film! Still a lot to do, but more than half of the scipt has now been filmed.
