A musical twist on Hansel and Gretel where Gretel starts to see the witch as a mother figure.
The story of Hansel and Gretel as it's never been told before. Gretel starts to see the witch as a surrogate mother during her time in the candy house, and even considers letting Hansel die to preserve her new life.
We'll shoot near the end of October (the 20th-23rd) and finish with post by early December. We plan to shoot on the RED or an equivalent digital camera. The film is a musical, with music by Berklee student Parker Davis.
Concept art for Gretel, as seen in the video above, was produced by Ben Doane, a student at MassArt, and the eventual costumes and sets will be based upon his design. The main set will be the Candy House, which will be build on a sound stage. Most of the money will go towards materials for that set.
No. The pictures in the video are concept sketches by Ben Doane. The final film will be live action, but it will attempt to maintain the same aesthetic.
