Ever wondered what would happen if independent art-house filmmakers were given the technical resources of films such as "Dunkirk" or "The Hateful Eight"? This might be the answer.

As one of the very few independent short film in cinematic history to be shot on 65mm film, the plot of ‘Daughter of Dismay’ tells the surreal and mystical tale of a witch, an emotionally broken woman who enters the deep of the woods to fulfil her biggest desire, her most heartfelt wish, for which she takes extreme and radical measures, measures that will have sinister consequences, leading to a heartbreaking and deeply melancholic finale. Portrayed in elegant, painting-like images, the film will be an epic, moving and emotional trip through a world of witchcraft and occultism, focusing on a different kind of witch than usually portrayed in media, one that doesn’t focus on cliched depictions of devil worship, but on a much deeper and more human side, one that many will find very much relatable.

With an incredible array of talent, including composer Joseph Bishara (The Conjuring, Insidious), visual effects artist Justin Schenck (Swordfish, The Exorcist FOX), cinematographer Ben Brahem Ziryab ("The Negative" (honored with an award by Kodak themselves), Room for Rent) and 1st AC Levente Násásy (Don't Breathe, Strike Back), "Daughter of Dismay" will be an art-house film unlike any you've seen before. We're combining the visual elements and music of large, epic Hollywood blockbusters with those of art-house and horror movies, and are packing them into a short film.

We're not stopping after post production though: For the exhibition of the film, 35mm and 70mm release prints will be made, which will screen at festivals and special events all around the world. We're proud to be one of a long line of short films to screen on 70mm, a format largely reserved for much, much bigger projects.

The crystal clear textures and detail, along with the rich natural color of film and the wide, epic feel are exactly why films like "Ben Hur", "Lawrence from Arabia" and "2OO1: A Space Odyssey" were shot in this format, and it's the same reason we did. This still is what the 35mm (2.4:1) and regular 70mm prints (2.2:1) will look like in terms of aspect ratio, the IMAX print will be much taller at 1.43:1. This will look absolutely beautiful on film. Final print production is currently set for late December 2018.

Facebook update by James Quinn, 26.12.2018:


"Daughter of Dismay", currently being scored by Joseph Bishara (The Conjuring, Insidious). After the score is finished, it’ll go out to our sound engineer, who’s a triple Academy Award winner and has done the mixes of some of the most influential films of all time (call scheduled for tomorrow to talk about the mix), after that, the final cut and mix along with the negatives will go to LA to FotoKem, where 35mm, 70mm and 70mm IMAX prints will be struck, supervised by Andrew Oran, who was responsible for the prints of "Dunkirk" and "The Hateful Eight". Extremely grateful for the team we have on this, I absolutely can’t wait to see it on the big screen for the first time. It’s shaping up to be even more than I hoped it would be.

We'd like to welcome a new member in the team of "Daughter of Dismay", who will be responsible for the sound mix of the film, to ensure it sounds as good as possible, even in IMAX theaters. His name is Steve Maslow, and he's been responsible for countless mixes of some of the most influential films of all time, including Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Empire Strikes Back, Edward Scissorhands, Escape from New York, Beetlejuice and many more. He's a triple Academy Award winner and one of the absolute best in the industry, and it's an honor to be working with him on this film.

From the conversation with Director of Photography Ben Brahem Ziryab:

We saw all these different things that were really above the 2,20:1 frame, and we thought it would be a shame to lose all that. Plus we thought this was a short film that would lend itself to that visual experience that you get by watching it on the biggest screen possible, which is the Imax format, which is essentially 1,43:1. It is kind of a square, very tall which is nice and you feel like you are sitting close to the screen and you kind of feel that you are in the movie. It is very visual and we thought "Well, that could be a very interesting option", so we ended up deciding,

"­, well, what if we shoot it in that aspect ratio? Then we make two different versions of the film. Make a version that is 2,20 for the 70mm screens and we make one for the Imax screens?"

James said "Let's do that". We did look at 15­perf, which is the Imax format, 15-perf, 65mm film. For budget reasons we thought that that was just a little bit too expensive. We found this other format which has actually not been used very much. It is 8­perf, 65mm, but instead of the film going horizontally [like IMAX] it actually goes vertically, like 5­perf and we thought "Well, this is kind of an interesting medium", and 8­perf 65's projection aspect ratio is actually very similar to the 1,43:1 Imax. So, you could release it in both formats without breaking the bank, essentially.

Austrian born director James Quinn behind the 65mm 8-perf camera on the set of "Daughter of Dismay".

"Daughter of Dismay" is officially finished! It's been a long journey that started over a year ago, a soul-crushing and energy-draining one, as well as the most beautiful experience I've had the privilege of going through. Getting to shoot a film in 70mm IMAX was something I not only didn't think was going to happen any time soon, it was an absolute dream to work with as part of the vision I had for this.

We're in touch with a few absolute legends at the moment, and are already working on building this into a feature, the first 70mm witch epic ever made. Can't say anything about it yet, but it's going to be absolutely gigantic. The last step for now is the production of the 35mm, 70mm and 70mm IMAX prints, which will take place in August. After that, it's ready to premiere. More details about screenings will be posted once we can tell you more.

We upgraded to 8 perf 70mm and are the first narrative short film in the history of cinema to be a 70mm IMAX project, since we will be striking 15 perf IMAX prints. Triple Academy Award winning sound engineer Steve Maslow will create a Dolby Atmos mix, which will be screening as a separate version, additionally to the IMAX, 70mm and 35mm ones. The film is finished, and we’re about to go into the printing stage. A trailer is available online.

Synopsis:
The plot of "Daughter of Dismay" tells the surreal and mystical tale of a witch, an emotionally broken woman who enters the deep of the woods to fulfill her biggest desire, her most heartfelt wish, for which she takes extreme and radical measures, measures that will have sinister consequences, leading to a heartbreaking and deeply melancholic finale. Portrayed in elegant, painting-like images, the film is an epic, moving and emotional trip through a world of witchcraft and occultism, focusing on a different kind of witch than usually portrayed in media, one that doesn't focus on cliched depictions of devil worship, but on a much deeper and more human side, one that many will find very much relatable.

Cast/Credits:
The film stars Dajana Rajiç, Ieva Agnostiç and Krist Mort in the lead roles, and features on-crew talent such as producer Justin Schenck (Swordfish, The Exorcist FOX), composer Joseph Bishara (The Conjuring, Insidious, Annabelle), triple Academy Award winning sound engineer Steve Maslow (The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Edward Scissorhands), print supervisors Vince Roth and Andrew Oran (Dunkirk, Interstellar, Phantom Thread), as well as more who have collectively worked on films such as There Will Be Blood, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Star Trek and Into The Wild.

Production notes:
The film was shot in 8perf 65mm, with 70mm IMAX blow ups made, as well as regular 70mm prints, all entirely photochemical. To achieve the crispest, most defined image, it was shot at an ASA of 50, something that proved to be a great difficulty, giving that it was shot in the dark of the woods. The film was lit with several 18k lights, so powerful that the cast and crew got sunburnt by them. The entirety of the light in the film is artificial. No natural light was used.
 
 
Synopsis:
‚Daughter of Dismay‘ erzählt die surreale und mystische Geschichte einer Hexe, einer emotional gebrochenen Frau, die sich in die Tiefen des Waldes begibt, um ihren größten und innigsten Wunsch wahrwerden zu lassen. Dafür greift sie zu extremen und radikalen Mitteln – Mittel, die schlimme Folgen nach sich ziehen werden, was in einem erschütternden und zutiefst melancholischen Finale mündet.

Mit seinen eleganten und gemäldeartigen Bildern ist der Film eine epische, bewegende und emotionale Reise durch eine Welt der Hexerei und des Okkultismus, bei der eine andere Art von Hexe im Mittelpunkt steht als die in den meisten Medien dargestellte. Bei dieser Hexe liegt der Schwerpunkt nicht auf klischeehaften Darstellungen von Teufelsanbetungen, stattdessen wird eine wesentlich tiefere und menschlichere Seite betont, mit der sich viele sehr gut werden identifizieren können.

Besetzung/Credits:
Die Hauptrollen des Films sind mit Dajana Rajiç, Ieva Agnostiç und Krist Mort besetzt. Zur Crew gehören außerdem Talente wie der Produzent Justin Schenck (Passwort: Swordfish, The Exorcist), der Komponist Joseph Bishara (Conjuring – Die Heimsuchung, Insidious, Annabelle), der Tontechniker und dreifache Oscar-Preisträger Steve Maslow (Das Imperium schlägt zurück, Jäger des verlorenen Schatzes, Edward mit den Scherenhänden), die Print-Supervisor Vince Roth und Andrew Oran (Dunkirk, Interstellar, Der seidene Faden) und weitere Mitwirkende aus Filmen wie There Will Be Blood, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Star Trek und Into The Wild.

Produktionsnotizen:
Gedreht wurde der Film in 65 mm (8 Perforationslöcher), mit 70 mm-IMAX-Kopien und mit normalen 70 mm-Filmkopien, alles komplett photochemisch. Um möglichst scharfe und klare Bilder zu erzielen, wurde Aufnahme Film mit 50 ASA verwendet, was sich als äußerst schwierig erwiesen hat, da die Dreharbeiten im dunklen Wald stattfanden. Für die Beleuchtung wurden mehrere 18.000-Watt-Lampen verwendet, die so stark waren, dass Darsteller und Crewmitglieder einen Sonnenbrand bekamen. In dem Film gibt es ausschließlich künstliches Licht, es wurde keinerlei natürliches Licht genutzt.
