    Huan Vu interviewed by LOVECRAFTER magazine by the German Lovecraft Society – this first edition is putting focus on Lord Dunsany, who has been an important influence on H.P. Lovecraft, especially visible in the Dreamlands stories.

    Footsteps

    One foot in front of the other…


    It’s a wrap for the short film after two-and-a-half additional shooting days last week-end! We had a great time together with really beautiful amazing results.

    This picture shows me spontaneously directing my personal Terrence Malick tribute shot :D – Water level wasn’t that high when we scouted two weeks ago. Love it when random luck makes a good idea even better.

    Big thanks to the whole crew and cast – and our incredible supporters at Ludwig Kameraverleih who made this possible! <3

    Meanwhile “The Dreamlands” are lurking behind the Wall of Sleep, more news very soon…

    Cheers,
    Huan

    First Glimpse

    Since we don’t have a lot to tell right now and we feel bad letting you all wait… Why not show you a glimpse of the script we worked so long and hard on? Here is the first page (it won’t give away anything about the story):

    Second rank

    Sadly we didn’t win the German Animation Screenplay Award, but we’re proud about coming second place. It was a tough competition, our congrats go to screenwriter John Chambers for his third-time win and his “Olchis” project, based on the famous children’s book series by Erhard Dietl.

    Nominated

    NOMINATED FOR GERMAN ANIMATION SCREENPLAY AWARD

    This award aims to promote outstanding German-language screenplays for feature-length animated films. It is accompanied by 2,500 euros in prize money and will be awarded on April 27th by a jury consisting of members of the German film industry.

    You’re certainly wondering why we have participated in a contest for animated films. The answer is: Due to the fantasy elements we indeed can imagine “The Dreamlands” to become a full animated feature or a film with animated sequences. Here in Stuttgart we are surrounded by internationally acclaimed animation and VFX studios. So it definitely makes sense to consider such alternative options.

    We see the nomination as a recognition of the screenplay’s quality and as a strong sign regarding the progress this project has made so far.

    Negotiations

    Hi there! I catched a flu after Berlin, not feeling very well at the moment. But on dream level everything is still looking good. New screenplay raised very positive feedback so far, in Germany as well as abroad.

    Next weeks will be dominated by negotiating contracts and agreements. In a way it’s like marrying, so everyone involved needs some time to be sure. We have set ourselves a deadline for May for all of this. Either we find us in a solid production structure till then with a clear path and strategy how to get this film fully funded or we will abandon this time-consuming ‘professional’ approach and go our own ways.

    Thanks to everyone for holding on! I wish things would progress more quickly, but unfortunately that’s how the film industry works if you’re not a famous filmmaker yet.

    In the meantime, please check out this crazy Lovecraft encyclopedia by a friend of mine which is currently in the making. A must-have for every Lovecraftian collector! Yes, it’s officially endorsed by me, so this means it is definitely possible to summon something by using this tome… (Do mind it’s in German though, the incarnations are hidden and you have to get all pronunciations absolutely right – you don’t want to end up like good ol’ Friedrich Wilhelm von Junzt, do you?)
