YUKI is a horror/fantasy film inspired by Shinto (ancient Japanese folklore), about a young mother named Amanda (Quinn Jackson) who abandons her family to create a new life with a mysterious stranger, YUKI (Meilin Gray), whose life is built upon ceremony, luxury and beauty. But all is not so golden as it seems, when Amanda discovers that her new friend has sinister intentions. This is the story of an ancient spirit making its way through the modern world. It is a story of terror, magic, mystery and hope.
ABOUT THE FILM
YUKI is the first narrative film from PYRAMYD and it is a joint production between Ramble West and Pier 59 Studios. Is a family affair. It was written by Director Andrew Nisinson and Devon Leaver, his cousin. Andrew and Devon have been close since her birth, their artist families raising them on movies, in particular all things scary, magical and conceptual. Meilin Gray (YUKI) is Andrew's partner and closest collaborator, with whom Andrew initially came up with the idea for the piece. Quinn Jackson (Amanda) met Meilin in acting school, since graduating, they have performed together throughout New York. Molly Saito (Art Director/Creative) and Louisa Mardirossian (Producer) are longtime PYRAMYD collaborators. Both have been working for the company for over 4 years. Michael Hauer (cinematographer) has collaborated with Nisinson on a myriad of projects and has shot for shows such as Daredevil, Saturday Night Live (digital shorts) and Chef's Table. He is a singularly brilliant cameraman and was, like Nisinson, born and raised in New York City. Together they will bring this ghostly tale to life.
