"Unbound" // Award-winning Scifi film based on NYT bestseller

UNBOUND is an award-winning short film that I produced for a talented emerging female director, Maggie Mahrt, as part of her AFI Directing Workshop for Women. It's based on an excerpt from a NYT Bestseller and EP'd by David Greenwalt (Grimm, Buffy). "Unbound" is an allegorical short film, set in turn-of-the-century Japan about a young woman, Kitsune, who accepts an offer to work at a mysterious silk factory in order to save her destitute family. However, the offer is more than she bargained for as she soon finds herself entangled in a disturbing metamorphosis as she begins turning into a Silkworm herself becoming the commodity the factory is selling. Shot in a studio in Los Angeles, CA. Crew of 30+. Included live action, SFX, VFX, a moth-wrangler (yep!), a child actor, and a partridge in a pear tree.
