Can you outrun darkness once the shadows fall?
Late at night, Aatisha finds a digital memory card. What she doesn't know yet is that it's full of footage...of her. In a high tension game of cat and mouse, Aatisha starts to wonder who she can trust, and if she can trust herself. Did you see something? Over there in the shadows? Was that just her imagination, or a very real threat?
nightwalk is as much an exercise in film as it is an exercise in bringing women together to collaborate, support, and lift one another up. There are too many incredibly talented women in this city, country, and world to pass up. It's time to invite them in.
Edmonton is all about its horror movies - there's a strong, eager community of horror lovers in this city just waiting to make magic happen. nightwalk will make good use of the horror-loving community for things like SFX makeup, lighting, and music.
Remember when your mom said you're a unique snowflake? It's true. Despite its small production size, nightwalk's cast and crew highlights diversity in ethnicity, age, size, and more. It's 2016: everyone belongs, and we want all audience members to be able to imagine themselves in the story, no matter who they are.
Edmonton is known for its creatively nurturing spirit. I want to take that and run with it, using this production as an opportunity to teach students - especially female - about various on set duties.
nightwalk will be filmed in some of the darkest, eeriest spots in town, including City Centre's East parkadge, the Ortona Armoury, and other historical spots in the downtown core of Edmonton.
The majority of nightwalk takes place - you guessed it - at night. We'll be using a lot of shadow and darkness accented with colour to bring out the moodiness and tension of the story.
Part of nightwalk will be filmed in a "found footage" style as Aatisha uncovers just how much her stalker knows about her.
CGI? Nah, let's get real. We'll be using the incredible makeup design and practical effects of VampireNomad Palette to provide some serious scares. We just can't tell you when they're going to jump out at you or we'd ruin the fun.
