Leviathan Ages: First Two Amazing TrailersAugust 29th, 2013
Leviathan Ages is a short fim created by London-based director Jon Yeo as a pure passion project. Bound in ancient celestial ballet, nine dead Kings arise to claim a fallen Emperor.
The film’s story is described here: “High up amongst craggy hilltops sits the ancient and powerful monument. An imposing temple, from where the Empire has been ruled harshly. Inside, a decrepit inner sanctum. Its dull crumbling walls are defaced with tribal markings. Half turned to dust and dead wired, a still and dormant place.
“The Emperor sits centrally in the chamber. Proud, deﬁant, adorned in ceremonial robes. These are his last moments, in a trance like state our illustrious leader begins to conduct an aeons old ritual. With telekinetic grace, nine stones levitate, orbiting in gentle celestial ballet. This rite awakens the spirits of nine dead Kings, their eternal souls now locked in fragmented prisons carved from the ancient rock.
Across ruined landscapes they approach to claim the fallen Emperor, in judgement of his reign.”
Written, designed, shot, cut and directed by Jon Yeo, Leviathan Ages was created over two years without any financial backing at all.
