Finnish rockers Nightwish‘s ambitious movie project seems to be coming along nicely. Along with a new album of the same name, tehy are creating and filming a movie called “Imaginarium.” The protagonist of the film is a songwriter with an otherworldly imagination. He is an old man who still thinks he’s a young boy. While asleep he travels into his distant past where his dreams of old come back to him mixed to the young boy`s world of fantasy and music. In his dreams the old man fights to find the memories most important to him.
Seen here is a rather lengthy video from the orchestral music session for the movie and album, both of which are due out in 2012. The album will be released on Roadrunner Records.
