Corvidae Poster


Maisie Williams, best known for playing Arya Stark, arguably the coolest charaacter on Game of Thrones, stars in the short film, Corvidae. Set to premiere on August 27th, 2018, at the FrightFest Film Festival, Corvidae was written and directed by Tom de Ville.

CORVIDAE is a dark fairytale written and directed by Tom de Ville that follows a young girl who loves birds, and the very strange strange thing that happens when she tries to protect a wounded crow from the boys in her village. Rooted in the tradition of pastoral horror, it is a short, silent film inspired by the work of writers such as Alan Garner and Arthur Machen.

JAY (Maisie Williams) is a young girl living in the countryside who comes across a group of local boys who are shooting birds and nests with their catapult. Eager to protect them from doing more harm, JAY steps in and frightens the boys away. They leave, but not without making it clear that they will have their revenge. Taking a wounded crow home, JAY tries to construct a splint out of bits and pieces she finds in her bedroom. She also tries to feed the ailing bird. Following a haunting dream, she wakes up to discover the crow has died. Determined to give it an honourable burial, JAY takes the bird to its rightful resting place: the woods. Upon arriving there, she is suddenly ambushed by the three boys. A chase ensues, climaxing in a chain of events that no one could possibly see coming…

CORVIDAE was produced by Nick Hudson and Alexander Wolpert. It is 11-minutes long, with cinematography by Maja Zamojda, editing by Miikka Leskinen and original music by Adam Nordén.

Following its World Premiere in London, CORVIDAE will screen at more festivals across the world throughout 2018 and 2019, with a North American premiere soon to be announced.

He's the puppet master. You don't see him, but he pulls the strings that gets things done. He's the silent partner. He's black ops. If you notice his presence, it's the last thing you'll notice — because now you're dead. He's the shadow you thought you saw in that dark alleyway. You can have a conversation with him, and when you turn around to offer him a cup of coffee, he's already gone.
