The Last Beholder trailer was created with the help of some extremely talented individuals. Taylor Robinson of SixFootFive Productions was the director, camera operator, and editor. Eric Chapman of Symmetric Sound composed the original music, as well as designed the sound. Drew Hicks created the special effect of the "shimmering hair" just like we imagined it. Erin Moon provided the voiceover. Erin Greer was the talented actress that you see in the video, and Kerri Bunn did the make-up. Many thanks also to Rashel Ross for finding both of them!
It all started the day Gus murdered the ficus.
Which also happened to be the day Wallis watched her hair turn to gold.
After an unspoken and even more unlikely alliance forms the day their parents marry, Wallis and Gus soon discover that there’s a reason for every feeling of un-belonging they’ve ever known. It doesn’t take long for the adventure of a lifetime to begin right under their feet -- teaching them to look beyond what they are able to see into what they are able to know. And maybe even remember.
This is a story about true things that sit just a layer behind what our eyes can see.
This is a story about how two misfit kids learned their own value -- not just in the ordinary world around them, but in the extraordinary world of the way things truly are.
Journey with Wallis and Gus to lands far beyond, which, it turns out, are hiding just beyond the cracks of this world.
