Experiencing Interruptions?


In ancient Norse tradition, one can only pass on to the afterlife after dying honorably in battle, sword in hand.

So goes the story of Einar, an aged Viking warrior who has outlived his generation and now in old age relishes the days of battle and his missed opportunity to die honorably in battle and join his long lost brothers in Valhalla. After the death of his wife and haunted by visions of his past, Einar decides to set off into the wilderness alone alone in search of a final confrontation to attain his lost honor.

Director Biography - Tyler Mahoney

Having grown up in a small south Jersey town right outside of Philadelphia, Tyler has loved story-telling since he was a boy. His first days were filled with old pulp fiction sword and sorcery movies and raised on a healthy diet of comics, table top RPGs, and videogames. He's dedicated his life towards the entertainment medium, and its power to inspire and spark wonder in others, just as he was. He is devoted to his passion, cutting his teeth on odd jobs in and out of the film industry to fuel his independent writing and studying.
