This short film is brought to you by VonWong and Five Knights Productions and produced with Les Ateliers Nemesis, Duché de Bicolline and Dracolite.

The project came together when Von Wong and Dracolite , the largest Medieval accessory store in Canada decided to collaborate and work on a short Game of Thrones fan film. Realizing that some serious special effects were going to be needed, they called up Les Ateliers Nemesis to provide them with some mindblowing special effects. Duche de Biccoline was called in as the location of choice to make this shoot possible who contributed accommodations and stunt choreographer Philippe Desmarais. Five Knights Productions a Montreal based group of videographers was called to complete the last critical part of the puzzle to help direct and shoot the film.

From that point forward, additional companies were called in to contribute to the shoot from local armories such as Fantasy Armour to additional special effects teams Atelier de l’Arbre Mecanique, Cinematic composer Kamel Bushnaq Music to Sound Engineer Andrew Kesler to Black Board Productions as additional camera and sound contributed to make this project a success.
