An unofficial teaser trailer for director Daniel E. Falicki’s “Dwarfhammer” is now on Vimeo.
This fantasy epic written by Daniel Falicki, Ryan Lieske, and Brett Miller, and directed by Daniel Falicki, is coming to look “pretty bad-ass. ” Referred to by his closest friends and fellow filmmakers as a movie-mad scientist, Falicki is recognized for his inventive film creations. He has brought us such independently produced blockbusters as GR30k (2010), The Last Vampyre on Earth Shadow (2013), World: The Haunting of Mysti Delane (2015), All About Joe (2014), and Accidental Exorcist (2016), His most recent is Dwarfhammer.
Based on Dungeon and Dragons characters, Dwarf Hammerers form the king’s bodyguard. Chosen by the king himself, they are individuals from different units, and even clans. They have proven themselves as fierce warriors in innumerable battles, proficient not only in wielding weapons, they also have deadly martial arts skills. They are also steadfastly loyal, and bold and cunning in nature. Formed into shock-units, they break enemy formations, the way a Warhammer crushes shale.
This allegiance goes both ways. It is the Lord’s duty to equip these hand-picked units. The symbol of this bond is the weapons they carry. Each is given a heavy and perfectly balanced great hammer, the Dwarf Hammer. Dwarfhammerers enjoy a high status in their holds. When not engaged in war, they are appointed to guard the throne room or front gate.
In this Daniel Falicki epic, when one of the king’s Dwarfhammerers has been grievously wounded, he must pass the mantle to his reluctant son, Bannor. Bannor must learn to embrace his fate as he is forced to battle a roving band of slave-traders, led by a sadistic serial killer known only as The Beggar.
