FROM BOOK TO FILM 

YOZAKURA

Is inspired by the novel VIOLET by Leslie Tate

 

It was full of light and I walked down a tunnel, figures were holding me. 

Beth’s journey into otherness which she has thought about so often, took her over.  Set beyond time and place we follow her as she comes to terms with an ambiguous future after escaping a relationship with a dark, charismatic minister.

When I looked up into the night sky it was violet

 

Love and faith are renewed in her future with the kind and charming James but time is nebulous and opaque.   Facing death Beth discovers a world where light and shadow come together, where the dark makes the truth hard to see, of violet and a journey beyond the realms of heaven on an ocean to a world without a sky where love can be eternal and life can be lived more fully than ever.

 

there was no sun, there was no moon only falling blossom of the night cherry.

The realms and lives (and afterlife) of the characters will be brought vividly to life using Bunraku puppetry, shadow puppetry in a Japanese style fable about faith, love, death and the afterlife from Award Winning Theatre On Wax.

There are risks and challenges associated with making any film, such as equipment damage, puppets acting out, getting rained on during a shoot, and any number of other issues.

 

We've got a solid team in place to ensure this doesn't happen, with a backup plan for every shoot we'll be doing.
