oh thank god
my uncle was killed from dancing with a tree, twice, (the second time he was trying to kill the tree)

i beleive we can all pray for that

except presbyterians.. :B
A young man named Mishael (Nathan Weaver) makes a deal with Sapphire the Witch Queen (Amanda Engelke) to obtain a cure for his dying wife, Rachel (Heather Chirban). This causes a chain reaction of events that leads to an overthrown King Joshua (Derek Baker) coming out of hiding with his Mighty Men in an attempt to take back the kingdom from Sapphire.

"The Chalice" is written and directed by David Chirban.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-04-26
What can I say about this trailer that it doesn't say for itself? If The Chalice - HD trailer by ~OnyxDragonFilms is any indication of good things to come, then let's all hop aboard! Cinematography, pacing and acting in this teaser embody what fantasy films should be. Keep an eye on this deviant and for the feature film, for they're sure to deliver!

"Suddenly I know I'm not sleeping"

Wow, a special thanks for featuring the trailer. I waited in anticipation for the results (comments) of the DD all weekend. I appreciate the feedback, and I will be getting this back to the writer/director David Chirban. I'm the bearded one :)

Ya know? The horse rider that doesn't know how to grip the reins, apparently. LAME. :(

But, yes, the feedback is nice. There are some audio issues with some of the dialogue in this trailer--I concur. Being as it is I edited it myself. The scene with Sapphire (Lady in Green, and no she isn't Elven--though I see your point) needs to be completely dubbed and we haven't done that yet. The strange muffled sound in the sequence was my attempt at killing the obvious airplane noise--unfortunately, until we dub, it was the best quality version. Major audio issues with that scene. But that's what dubbing is for... even if I hate dubbing with a seething passion. >:)

But thank you all so much, and please check out our other videos. I plan to upload a scene or two from "The Chalice" when I can, give you more of a taste.

@01:20Oh wow! This looks amazing! The sound quality was a little shaky in some spots, but overall it was very good, I thought.

I look forward to more of this movie!

@01:20that was... lame
ElectrikPinkPirate Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2009
@01:20If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. That is disrespectful to the filmmaker and your comment was not constructive whatsoever.

FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?
Pinkchicken Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009
okay then, the story line is over used there's so much stuff about those times it's ridiculous and I find it boring. It hasn't been very well filmed, it doesn't look like the guy can ride a horse and the voice quality is poor, in other words lame- it won't help the film maker by just restated what other people have critiqued nor will it help by people just saying cool. So yeah I can say whatever I want even if it's not nice, i think that going into detail makes it less nice myself.
