Production Description

Casting a short, HD, non-union film based on a feature-length opera that we hope to present at BAM's "Next Wave Festival" in Fall 2013. This Asian Steampunk fairy tale tells the story of a hero's journey as he races deep into the dark and magical land of Mikawa (aka the Olympic National Rainforest) in search of the iris’ immortalizing elixir, that will save his dying lover, who is suffering from an agonizing wasting disease brought on by lovesickness. This is a tale that is equally sweet and macabre, filled with samurai swords, sci-fi kimonos, and Garrett Fisher's haunting and moody score that evokes a bittersweet, other-worldliness in which love requires separation and a high stakes journey in order to be made whole.
