A Walking Shadow

'Some auditions you just can’t prepare for'


There is a gift of such beauty and wonder, of which each and every one of us has been bestowed.

A momentous offering accorded at the very moment of our creation.

And this all-inclusive inheritance affords us the most amazing of chances: To dream, to create, to inspire.

It is the greatest thing in the universe: 

The Gift of Life.


'When Rikki attends an audition for Macbeth she couldn't dare to imagine the real reason of the tryout.

Believing she's alone, Rikki climbs onto the stage and begins practising a few lines, but is soon brought to an abrupt halt when the mysterious Sam appears and applauds her efforts.

What follows is an encounter of fantastical proportions that will leave both Rikki and Sam changed and beyond compare.'


A short film that will resonate with so many, A Walking Shadow is a dialogue-driven drama that empowers us all to manifest every thought, to express every feeling and to realise every dream.

This is why together we can bring about a unique and inspiring work of art that transcends our everyday lives and lifts each of us to an enlightened place of clarity.

Be a player of insight who, upon this stage, struts and frets your hour – bestowed with purpose and meaning.

Journey with us and discover that the very existence of Death is what truly allows us all the incredible opportunity to search for The Meaning of Life.


'The Universe will reveal all kinds of magic as soon as we open our hearts to it'
