A girl is walking home after dark, but a winter witch by magic leads her true self (soul) away from the safe path (as witches in folklore do), while a shadow shell of the girl continues to walk as if nothing had happened. Realms change and the girl is walking deep in the dark forest of her own psyche, and the witch is leading her deeper and deeper into the dark, where she finally meets the winter witch eye to eye.
Shot and edited in less than 2 hours. Original material 6 minutes, shot with Canon HV20 and a small led flashlight. A submission for the thedvchallenge.com 15th (charity) contest, theme – cold.
Music by Sniegavīru Rūpnīca, my friend is in the band and I’ve got the permission to use the song in this film. The song is called “Raganu karaspēks” or “Army of witches”, which is attacking with fire amid a storm and everybody is screaming for help. The version of the song in this video is edited to suit the story rhythm.
