I have been living in the rainy melancholic fictional world of "Wicked Trails" for several years in my head. And I wanted to give it a physical form, with the music & cinematography that I have been associating with the visuals.
I imagined it as a video game for a long time, thinking a lot in terms of level design, plot, aesthetics, and game mechanics. It's been only since last year that I saw potential in the story alone & me wanting to see, at least some of it, on the big screen.
Taken from a short story series “From a future, we’ll never know” that I wrote some years ago, this 1-hour film ("Wicked Trails") is taken from Chapter 3 of the book, covering a few aspects from the full screenplay to adapt to an indie-budget film.
