The Alchemist's Letter

“When I consider the incredible caliber of talent that collaborated with me on this film, I’m left feeling equal parts blessed and blown away,” said Stevens.

Today, Pixel Veil Productions debuted the trailer for its newest short animated film, “The Alchemist’s Letter”, a richly-inventive and visually-stunning dark fairy tale from director Carlos Andre Stevens. Slated for full release in the 2015 festival season, The Alchemist’s Letter features a star-studded cast including Academy Award-nominated John Hurt and up-and-coming young starlet, Eloise Webb.

“When I consider the incredible caliber of talent that collaborated with me on this film, I’m left feeling equal parts blessed and blown away,” said Stevens. “Whether it’s my talented voiceovers John Hurt and Eloise Webb, the magnificent team of artists who crafted the animation, or working with veteran Swedish composer Mikael Sandgren, this has truly been an all-star production and I’m delighted to finally introduce this film to the world.”

Plot Synopsis: When Veridian, an estranged young man, receives his late alchemist father Nicolas’ inheritance (voice of Academy Award® nominated John Hurt), he is exposed to the ill-fated reality that his father built a tumultuous gold-making machine powered by his own memories. The film takes viewers on an enchanted journey through the vessels of the machine in exploration of the contents of the alchemist’s most precious memories, all in an attempt to give Veridian one last life lesson and save his relationship with his daughter (voice of Eloise Webb) from following down the same fateful path.

Notable Cast: John Hurt (two-time Academy Award-nominated for his work in The Elephant Man and Midnight Express) and Eloise Webb (most recently playing a title role in Disney’s Cinderella)
