Greyhawk takes it’s bow in competition at the Edinburgh International Film Festival this June, swiftly followed up with a Q&A screening at the London East End Festival.
I made this film for two reasons: firstly as I find Keaton’s words beautiful – those in ‘You’ are supernal and I wanted to explore them through a different medium. And secondly this film is the beginning stage of creating a larger piece which explores the themes of love found in his work.
Greyhawk is about a lot of things – a missing dog, lost humanity, trust, loyalty and friendship – but one thing in particular is central to it. Blindness. Its main character Mal – a reclusive, disillusioned British army veteran – is blind.
“When preparing for A Prayer For Rain, Pindrop was the only sound designers/mixers I had in mind. I knew their capabilities for pushing boundaries of soundscape – bringing every breath, each rasp in the voice to life with meticulous sound design. The team is not afraid to break the rules to serve the story and the director.
