The film shoot was for the production of two book trailers to promote the second and third installments of Denise's Eternal Trilogy. Denise filmed her first trailer in 2012, and felt that it was time to complete the collection. The Eternal Trilogy focuses on young female protagonist, Vala Pendragon, descendant of King Arthur - and - unbeknownst to her at the story's beginning, she is also part Fae, possessing a wealth of untapped magical abilities. With the help of a beautiful Fae boy, Elvar Oakley, she discovers more about herself than she ever thought possible. Eternal at it's core, is a voyage of discovery, growing up, love, family and friendship, as Vala - with her family and friends - face and conquer peril and evil together, proving that love really does conquer all.
Throughout the trilogy, there is distinct Arthurian vein connecting to the folklore of King Arthur that we are all familiar with, but with an original twist.
For the subsequent trailers, Denise used the Hemingford and the Wyton rooms, chosen she said, "for their opulent, yet understated glamour, and generous space." The versatility of the Hemingford room lended itself perfectly to depict three separate settings: Vala and Elvar's bedroom, Jelly and Max's bedroom, and Lann's interdimensional experience! In contrast, the homely Wyton provided the setting for Vala's famous healing scene.
The gardens themselves provided a bucolic backdrop for a number of exterior scenes, including several with the great and powerful Merlin! And in contrast, a more tender moment between our two protagonists, Vala and Elvar.
Denise also commented that, "Sam really went the extra mile to accommodate us - a 17 strong cast and crew! - making us all feel at home and generously giving us the space we needed to film. Bella, Sam's dog, is also a true star - couldn't have got through the experience without her! Oh - and Sam's breakfasts are the best - great soda bread!"
All-in-all, it was a great project to be a part of and I wish Denise every success.
