This musical short film – a personal project and major labour of love from director Paris Zarcilla – is an epic fantasy, in which a neo-tribal hunter journeys to the Oracles to seek help to keep his desperately sick wife from the cold clutches of Death – before it’s too late.

It’s so impressive it was recently shortlisted for ‘Best Music Video’ and ‘Best Short Film’ at London Independent Film Festival.

“Not quite sure how to describe this but if I had to its a long form music video that reads like a short film. It’s been an epic journey with this project but well worth the sweat, blood and tears! Was aching to make something I could be proud of. The film was entirely self funded and made purely for the love of the song (artist Slow Magic) and a great story. The entire production was all in house by my company Sudden Black. It was a three day shoot, shot partly in my back garden, Wendover Woods (one hour drive from London) and Action Underwater Studios.”
