Production Design

For the futuristic short film Knightwish 1.5, Production Designer David Jetre dedicated four months to pre-production and prepared all the elements required for the story's bleak post-apocalyptic look and feel. Knightwish was shot over several weekends on a remote farm in Texas during winter. Fight training and choreography took place over six weeks, while wardrobe and props were manufactured. The short film was excerpted from a larger feature film trilogy currently being shopped around for financing.
