Sage falls in love with Nitanis at first sight only to later discover she is in fact a ghost.
Past Time is a story of love and it's power to transcend time, space and even death. While on a hike Sage meets Nitanis, a beautiful young woman and falls in love at first sight. However, Sage soon discovers that Nitanis is in fact a ghost but, his love for her compels him to seek the truth of her disappearance and murder to help her spirit complete the journey to the other side.
SAGE is a 30-year-old man new to the city of Vancouver and loves to hike. Coming from a small remote town in Northern Alberta, Sage is excited to learn the lay of the land and meet new people. Lynn Valley quickly becomes one of Sage's favorite hiking spots not only because of the land's natural beauty, but because he meets the love of his life, Nitanis.
Nitanis is a beautiful 30-year-old woman who loves to hang around the Lynn Valley hiking trails. She spends a lot of her time there and has never met anyone as open as Sage. Nitanis builds a solid and loving relationship with Sage before she shows him the truth of her existence, she is in fact a ghost of a woman who has disappeared over twenty years ago and needs Sage's help.
The land in this film will act as a character. Through various set ups the natural beautiful of the land will bring life, love and pain to this story.
One of the most important scenes for production design is the shallow grave where Nitanis' remains are found. I would like to create a very realist look by using a combination of VFX makeup, greenery and bones.
For the skeleton I will use styrofoam bones. This will be the base to build on top of to achieve the look and feel I wish for.
A realistic orb which will be released from the body is important to this story. Luckily I have a VFX background and can achieve this easily using Adobe After Effects.
