The film took a long time to get off the ground, this was mainly due to my desire to not make just another short film.
The goal was to create something that looked like a feature film, but which told a story and was also incredibly visual, dark, graphic, powerful and had great characters.
There was an enormous amount of research from a variety of areas, films, books, religious sources, online and the work of different artists. Films such as Angel Heart, Apocalypse Now, Evil Dead, Constantine and even the Texas Chainsaw Massacre helped spark ideas and inspiration.
Even with all these references and source materials, the aim was to create something new, a different take on familiar characters, along with creating stylised images, settings and environments.
A film that stood out from the crowd on a number of levels.
