Wisp is a dark contemporary "fairy tale" about a young woman who tempts the supernatural when upstaged by a teenage rival.
Wisp, written & directed by Nicholas Checker, is a contemporary "fairy tale" with a bit of a dark edge. It's a tale of a young woman so caught up in overachieving, she winds up tempting the supernatural when she's upstaged by a teenage rival. The result: a harrowing showdown in an eerie quarter of the forest where fabled woodland spirits engage her in a spiritual duel between her ambitions and her morality. Audiences will relate for sure.
The current Wisp project is a 19 minute short Nightshade Productions intends to see make an impressive festival run and generate the resources for an eventual feature-length.
