Monsters have invaded a village, slaughtering almost everyone. The last survivor, a young woman with a special power, is badly wounded. She flees to the misty woods beyond her village, seeking refuge in a dark hiding place. But they can smell her blood. They follow her, stalking her. She is scared, but as she feels them approaching, she realizes what she must do: Move beyond what she thinks is possible. Destroy these beasts. Use her power to create a new beginning. And she will — no matter what it takes.

We are beside ourselves with excitement when we take first look at the highly cinematic short film up-and-coming director Richard Krause made for PauseFest, and can’t wait to dive in on the music and sound design which we’ve been asked to create for Richard’s piece. A hyper-real take on a super-surreal world!
