Mermaids and Unicorns

I can’t even begin to explain how much I have learned through the process of creating the proof of concept for Worlds Away. It seems each day I learn something new from the day before.

Not only am I working with an AMAZING cast and crew, I’m also fortunate enough to work with execs from Hollywood along the way. Last week I shared with them the latest rough cut…they had some great suggestions for close-ups and reshoots as well as wanting more magical creatures! We reshot the mermaid scenes and pondered what other magical creature we could include…

Which led us to turning Kobi into a unicorn. Now he’s not typically my first choice for something out of the ordinary, but I had already used Midnight for a horse-washing scene…so Kobi won the honor by default.

He was a champ! He didn’t mind the horn or all the adjustments that went along with it. He didn’t mind being led around with the horn moving on his head…he really didn’t like the fog!

Since the scene wasn’t written into the script in the first place, we had the freedom to work it however we chose – so Tabitha took her unicorn for a walk! Click here for the raw footage – enjoy!


About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
