The Story
20 months ago

Hello! Greeting from Chiang Mai, Thailand. I am a filmmaker, who is in love with horror film. I also have a strong passion for death and funeral, so I'm willing to make a short film based on childhood and research about funeral castle maker in the north of Thailand.

This short film is about people who do the funeral business in Chiang Mai, Thailand through the horror genre. About the young man, who decided to help his father's business about making a funeral castle for dead people. At that funeral, he will meet someone who familiar to him and make him dive into the sorrowful memory of loss.

Idea

"When there is no saying goodbye, the travelling, which already began, is never gone"

Concept

"Dead people will be prepared to ready for travelling to the afterlife at the funeral and let the living people farewell. For someone, who chooses not to say any goodbye, even the dead are gone. So, the memory will become a ghost, haunted and never fade away"

Synopsis

The young man decides to help his father's business, who is a funeral castle maker, in the funeral of some villager. But he sees the decease as a person who is familiar to him. That person shows up again when he gets home, it make him can not attend the funeral anymore. After spending time with himself, he gradually travels back to the memory, which he hardly forget. It reminds him of a story in the past between him and his father.
