A new video update with behind the scenes footage from our last shoot:
“Once when the wind was soft and scented I heard the south calling, and sailed endlessly and languorously under strange stars.” – H.P. Lovecraft, “Ex Oblivione”
No one can prepare you for a loss. It comes like a swift wind.
Our beloved crew member Brigitte will be missed dearly. Her light-hearted spirit and kind help and support pulled us through our difficult first week of shooting. We will be forever thankful for that. Our thoughts are with her many friends and her family now, especially her husband and her son, both also members of the Dreamlands Crew.

Quick recap of the first block of shooting
Here is a great news article by the German Lovecraft Society about our first day of shooting in Dahn Rockland – all in German though:
Due to exhaustion and an unfortunate series of events we had to cancel a big scene later on that was planned in Vellberg. We will have to shoot it in the next block next year. Local press adapted to the situation and instead wrote about us filming on the stairs of St. Michael in Schwäbisch Hall.

Here it is! It may not be Lovecraft, but it is Lovecraftian. Check it out, hope you enjoy it. More information about the project at www.eternal-war.com/project/
Excited to see how “Eternal War” will develop further. Our next stop are the Dreamlands though – we are going to have our first block of shooting from August 24th till September 7th. Everything looks good, keep the faith and pray for good weather with us!
Our two location scouting tours into the Swabian Jura have been quite successful. Looks like we can shoot a lot of scenes not far from our home bases.
But there are also bad news: The Castello di Sammezzano in Italy faced legal chaos in the last few weeks. The company we negotiated with positively suddenly lost authority and now the castle will be put to auction again at the end of this month. Very likely that this flip-flopping sinks our plan to shoot there in late summer. Let’s hope a more stable situation will emerge soon so that we can at least go there next year.
