Two New Releases!
26 march 2009
Two new films from the mill this march! Yes, it's true!
Over one year in the making... It's finally done! From Millroad Film, Lone Animator and CJFilm comes an ode to Jules Verne and his classic novel 20 000 Lauges Under the Sea.
This is the only adaption with focus on the silent crew of the submarine. The choosen few. Those without names. The Wavebreakers.
This is their story and it is a dark saga about boredom, madness and isolation.
Premier 6 April in Växjö, Sweden at the Cinefest Convention.
Rififi, 6.00 PM.
Be there. Watch the spactacle. And your life will never be the same...
A parody of the classic formula of a H.P Lovecraft tale. I did everthing myself in this one. I filmed it in a few days in june 2008 and finished the editing in march 2009. It's a small projekt without any big ambitions.
The greatest challenge in Earthbound was to tranform shots of Ronneby into the 1920s... In fact, the film turned out a bit disapointing... So these shots is the best part of it... Let's call it a fun experiment.
Watch the Earthbound trailer on Youtube:

Mr. Noone on board - with a sword
A week ago Henning did a beautiful performance as the Captain of the drama. Our prop designer had made a giant steampunk-looking sword and The Henn wielded it bravely into action.

Like the legendary vehicle "N" of the film's backstory, Wavebreakers is a project always in motion... Even in in dark times and if The Wall here on millroad.lenneer.se stands still...
During june we have made a lot of greenscreen-shooting in The Basement Studios of Ronneby, Sweden. Machineroom-work, diving and figthing took place in the front of a green sheet.
Nothing is real and everything is green.
