Would you like to help produce an independent feature film based on H.P. Lovecraft’s work? Writer-director Huan Vu and a well-credentialed production team are aiming to adapt Lovecraft’s short stories “Celephaïs”, “The White Ship”, “The Strange High House in the Mist” and “The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath”, among others, into a film that will “remain faithful to his core concepts of fantastic escapism and cosmic horror…The Dreamlands is a film you are never likely to see produced by the established film industry”. To do so, they have created a crowd-funding drive at IndieGoGo to which you can contribute for various rewards:
THE DREAMLANDS is a dark fantasy film based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Dream Cycle, destined to become one of the most ambitious and lavish independent films ever made – but we need your help to embark on this epic journey.
…Roland, a troubled young orphan, is led by a mysterious old man into another world. This is a world that has been created over thousands of years by Earth’s greatest dreamers while they slept. In this world the old man reigns as king and hopes to train and guide Roland to be his successor.
Unfortunately Roland cannot overcome the dark shadows that weigh upon him and he is forced to decide whether he will use his abilities to keep building the Dreamlands or to destroy what others have already created.
Watch the 6-minute teaser trailer below for a sampling of the excellent production and vibe of the film.
