Director Statement

This is my second short film, and the completion of the Sound and Image course. On a trip to Spain I was able to go to a witchcraft exhibition which inspired me to make the film.
I created the story and modified it until I managed to achieve my goals of aesthetically creating medieval times and bringing the theme to the fore.
