"Comanche Stallion" filmed in Superama 65mm by Fatali Eye Productions

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Fatali Date: 13.01.2017
General Lathrop, a man with a violent obsession, seeks retribution for the untimely death of his son by destroying the horse he believes is responsible for his death. In the ensuing chase the General drags an entire cavalry detail as well as a group of Comanche into his web. The Comanche believe the animal is a spirithorse, a mystical creature they must protect at all costs!

Dedication: John Ford. Written By: Harry Carey Jr. Narrated By: James Arness. Producers: Clyde Lucas And Fatali. Director Of Photography: Fatali

I am so thrilled to be chosen by Clyde Lucas to become a partner filming Comanche Stallion. This script was the legendary John Ford’s pet film project, which never reached the screen. Comanche Stallion, based on the novel by Tom Milstead, it’s the story of the Comanche’s search for a mystical horse, while suffering the wrath of General Lathrop. Ford wanted Burl Ives for the role of the general, but Ives’ health was not up to the task, and Ford’s own health also failed.

Producer Clyde Lucas has been chosen to join his passion moving forward in making Comanche Stallion into a reality. He sees the potential of this film and how it should be made beautifully, and on film. I share this passion and vision of Clyde. I have been seeking the right project to debut our large format film company, Fatali Eye Productions. Filming Comanche Stallion will give us the opportunity to bring back the craze for western cinema. We have agreed to make this film in a widescreen format of Superama 65mm. This format is suited very nicely for the landscape image and to do it justice. My vision is to bring not only the story to life, but also the spirit of the place once lived wild and free in beauty; a visual narrative going beyond words inscribing into translations of light.

The Fatali Family is now debuting their Large Format 65mm motion film based company. Seeding from Fatali’s vision in the minds eye, and the translations of his visual narrations of nature’s light, land, and spirit…. in hope you will be more inspired by nature’s beauty, to praise and preserve our natural wonders for generations.

Fatali, often referred to as the light hunter, has been chasing the light for over thirty-years. He specializes in large format film capture of both still and motion of natural light that captivates the viewers’ emotion with the spirit of nature. He has received recognition as one of the world's top landscape photographers. If you ever stood in front of his images, you will know why.

I found my healing journey of spiritual and creative revolutions through nature, soon after I lost my mother from cancer when I turned fourteen years of age. Finding my voice in recording light, serves the purpose of telling my story, sharing a message, and to leave footprints of inspiration for generations to come. I ache for this story to be told on a heart level and to be heard once again, as I believe its source comes from an ancient language through the spirit of Earth meeting Heaven. Not spoken in tongue, but felt through it's eternal love and healing connection, in a place where we first came from, and where we will return once again.

A language of light, speaking from the heart of land and spirit, was not learned overnight. I have walked, hiked, climbed, camped for decades, while the entire time I was intimately engaging my relationship with nature, listening, touching, feeling, slowly letter by letter, word by word, I have come to learn a universal language that infuses nature’s physical beauty and spiritual energy, beaming ancient scriptures spoken through light and shadow. As God is the Author of these marvelous passages, we are blessed to experience; I am honored to serve as a visual Narrator of this language. I invite you to help me share this mission to others and together we will spread the light! -Fatali
