Private Project

Tylwyth Teg & the Vial

Secrets are contained in ancient trees. One cut...and all is lost. When a forester makes that cut, serious consequences befall and irrevocably prevail! This avant -garde original screenplay conjurs a plethora of enchantments and fantasy presented in experimental film noir to create a theme with a philosophical moral to ponder, much like all the fairy tales we know and love.

Director Statement

We wanted to create something avant-garde and unorthodox in relationship to silent film noir, utilizing color splash technology. The uniqueness of this film breaks through in the end when the voice of Tylwyth Teg shatters through the image of the screen, as we realize that moral consequence suddenly takes on a deafening form in a very magical reality. This film short is shot both in New York and Michigan's North country, in the heart of the upper peninsula. Inspired by Tim Burton , you will notice a Gothic like influence running through the vein of this production.
