Heavily pregnant on an isolated farm, a young woman faces the strange magic that burdens her reality. This is a fairytale about creatures with bonds more powerful than their shapes and lovers who share the same space but not always the same form.
Kelsey Egan grew up in middle America, where she learned to ride horses and value good weather. She is grateful to Robert Heinlein, Jack London and C.S. Lewis, among many others, for seeing her through eighteen long Wisconsin winters. Kelsey graduated from Vassar College in 2005 with a BA in Neuroscience & Behaviour and a BA in Drama, with a concentration in directing. Her direction of Kate Crackernuts by Sheila Callaghan as her thesis production earned her a Molly Thacher Kazan Memorial Prize for distinction in the theatre arts. She subsequently gained experience on various short films and big features in New York City, and then Beijing. Since moving to South Africa in 2007, Kelsey has worked on local and international projects of all sizes (including Maze Runner: The Death Cure, Dark Tower, Of Kings and Prophets, Eye in the Sky, The Giver, Zulu, Mad Max: Fury Road, District 9 and Mr. Bones II), and directed various music videos, PSAs and narrative work of her own. Her 26 minute S16mm narrative, Gargoyle, was nominated for a 2010 South African Film & Television Award for Best Short Film, and selected for screening at 16 International Film Festivals, including the Rhode Island International Film Festival and Palm Springs International ShortFest. The film received worldwide distribution from IndieFlix and Shorts International. When not developing original content via her production company, Crave Pictures, Kelsey offers her services as a freelance Director, Producer, Writer, Script Editor and Actress. She is a proud member of the Writer’s Guild of South Africa, and one of her feature screenplays was awarded ‘Best Spec Script’ at the 2013 Muse Awards. As a writer / director, Kelsey is represented by Creative Artists Agency (https://www.caa.com/) and Circle of Confusion (http://www.circleofconfusion.com/). As an actress, she is represented by Pursch Artistes (SA) and GenerateLA (USA).
