The King Who Sought Immortality

The King Who Sought Immortality

This is my very own little Ray Harryhausen-inspired epic, with monster fights and strange ancient lands. But I also hope it can bring some thoughtfulness into the adventure, which is basically a re-write of the Sumerian Gilgamesh epic. This is one of the last films I shot in the 4:2 image format. It was filmed in the summer of 2008 and took two years to finish. Dag, who plays the king, is another old buddy from our mutual amateur stage play years. The same goes for everyone else in the film, except for Rolf, playing the immortal, who is just a natural talent and loves films in general.
