Director Statement

“There is no peace
for the children of Man
save for ancient right,
won by blood.”

As the myth goes, an ancient race called the Danu Shide ( Day-Noo-She) lost their war with mankind thousands of years ago. They left this world, entered their own and the war was forgotten. Yet some of the Danu Shide, never forgot and never forgave. I am drawn to the ancient Irish and Scottish myths as well as action, suspense, and the supernatural. Circle of Stone came together in my desire to tell an intense, dynamic story that incorporated all my favorite elements. Taking the ‘Dark Fae’ and thrusting them into a modern day setting gave me the storytelling sandbox to indulge my creativity.
