When summer is holding the northern hemisphere in a steady grip, Felt Soul Media releases the short film “Unicorn Sashimi”, that brings the ice-cold memories of mid winter and cold snow back to our minds.
The peculiar time of release is as eccentric as the film it self. The normality in the ski film industry is to avalanche all the goodness in October-November every year to boost the winter enthusiasm for people living north of the equator. Now at the time of the summer solstice, Unicorn Sashimi stands alone in the warmth and is helping us remember that there will be more fairylike moments in cold white powder snow, just a few months away.
The things that really matters cannot be put down in to words and often attempts fall down flat on the ground. So when Felt Soul Media teamed up with Nick Waggoner and Yuki Miyazaki of Sweetgrass Productions in January this year, to make a film about the mythical Hokkaido unicorn – they seem to have decided to hold the words back and let the imaginary magic of the unforgettable moments speak.
