In Search of the Vissarion

January 29th, 2009 Comments Off

This is a documentary single that I have been making for the past few years, its about my journey to Siberia to meet with some followers of a religious community who live on a mountain deep within the Taiga forest, Siberia. It’s a self funded project that I managed to realise through many hours reaserching on the internet, making contact with some of the followers of the community who agreed to help me. Then I undertook the epic journey in time for the festival that celebrates the 15th year anniversery of their leader’s ‘awakening’. His name is the Vissarion, the man they believe to be the second coming, and my film is about my journey to Siberia and the people I met on the way.

Today I have burnt the final edit onto DVD which I will be sending out certain contacts/channels within the industry. I am excited as this is where all of the hard work could pay off, and my career as a filmmaker will officially become a reality.

wish me luck

Where am I?
