Following the unexpected death of his fiance, an American illustrator embarks on a soul-searching journey across the isolated Icelandic countryside, only to become drawn into a supernatural world of ancient runes and secrets -- unless it's all in his head.
Brendan Walter is a director, writer and producer from the bowels of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After touring the world in a band for seven years, Brendan saw the underground scene as becoming stagnant and more accessible to big league, capitalist pig, major labels. When asked if he felt a moral duty to fight this cancerous evil, he proudly proclaimed he wants to cash in and suck up to the big wigs. Brendan brought his life on the road to a screeching halt, and has settled down into the quiet, hassle-free world of writing, directing and photography, where nothing ever goes wrong. However, award winning music videos, worldwide photo publications, and successful commercial campaigns for artists such as Sia, Green Day, Weezer, Lorde and Fall Out Boy are not the end game for Mr. Walter. Plans for the future include action figures, Trapper Keepers®, lunch boxes, and bed sheets. He currently resides in Los Angeles, CA and is prudently burning the candle at one end.
