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.

The Story
