Long Walk to Forever is based on the Kurt Vonnegut story of the same name, and is the story of Catharine and Newt, childhood friends who’ve grown up together in a small town. When Newt goes off to war, Catharine gets engaged to Henry Stewart Chasens. A week before the wedding, Newt goes AWOL and comes to Catharine’s house to convince her to come for a walk with him.
This is easily the most beautiful short we’ve ever made. Preproduction took several months, during which time we ran a successful $7,500 IndieGoGo campaign and enlisted the support of dozens of cast & crew.
We’ve even gotten some press:
