To celebrate the 30 years it has been helping creative professionals with hard drives and other tools, LaCie, the premium brand from Seagate has created a short film, ‘Monster Hunter’, directed by RSA Films' Alexander Farrell.
The film follows the story of Steve Feltham, who since 1991 has been hunting full-time for proof of the Loch Ness Monster. In his pursuit of the monster, Feltham has sacrificed his relationships, home, and career in search of something bigger than himself. The film celebrates the imagination and freedom in this decision. “There’s great power in the imagination” says Feltham in the film, “some grow out of it, others don’t.”
The piece was shot over 10 days at Loch Ness and in the depths of the Scottish Highlands. Director Farrell set out to capture the mystery of the waters surrounding the waters of the Loch and the creatures that are said to live beneath the surface, but said that instead, “We discovered a man that loved the beast with all of his heart".
“To him, it wasn’t necessarily the Loch Ness Monster being real that was so important, but the idea that it was possible. That’s the magic. He encouraged us to do the same… dream big.”
For more than 30 years, LaCie states that it has been helping creative professionals to maximise their content potential; alongside with Seagate, both brands have been creating solutions to facilitate creative workflows.
“Together we stand beside the creative industry, helping filmmakers, small production/post-production houses, and global broadcasters protect their content," said Ekaterina Wilk, EMA PR manager for Seagate/LaCie.
