Haunted by the life he had to leave in order to support his family, The Ferryman, a weary and embittered freighter, begins his long and conflicted journey home. Without warning, he is violently and mysteriously summoned to a dark and ancient planet. There, he is put to the ultimate test: succumb to the darkness that binds his mind, or continue to fight to honor those he loves… even if winning comes at a price.
This short film is a labor of love that we’ve nurtured in between client projects for the last 4 years. It is inspired by pulp comics, 70’s sci-fi and forged from a desire to create a visually striking and compelling silent film set entirely to music.
“The Ferryman” is inspired and adapted from french graphic novel “Les 6 Voyages De Lone Sloane” by Philippe Druillet, set to “Eclipse Blue” by Nosaj Thing featuring Kazu Makino.
