It took longer than I anticipated, but now it’s finished and available for download: the “movie” version of “This Side of Darkness”!
What is it?
one step more from comic sequential art towards movie/animated picture: half an hour of playtime, the original comic pages re-edited to widescreen format, featuring a truely epic score from audiomachine including tracks from the albums Chronicles, Epica, Existence, Helios and Tree Of Life, this version of “This Side of Darkness” is as close as I could make it, towards a “real” movie flic.
It’s available for download in English or German as of now:

This is honestly one of the most beautiful, brutal, sad, and powerful things I have EVER encountered. Do I like it? No. I absolutely LOVE it! It is a very strong classical fantasy story, not watered down or fettered by any silly notions. It goes straight for the emotional centers, and left me wanting to revisit this world, this story.
