Finnish TV channel YLE TV1 recently conducted an interview with NIGHTWISH mainman/keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen and Stobe Harju, the director of the band's upcoming movie, "Imaginarium". You can now watch the report below. (Note: The report is in Finnish, but it contains English subtitles.)Holopainen recently told Petri Silas of Finland's Soundi magazine that the movie "Imaginarium" will follow the album's theme and story closely and will also include dialogue. All the preliminary screenplay work is finished and the storyboards are now done but no actors or actresses have yet been cast. In Holopainen's estimation, mainly unknown actors would be the best choice for the film as "unfamiliar faces tend to leave more space to the viewers' imagination." Holopainen has a decidedly low-key attitude towards the entire movie project. He has personally adopted a humble "straight-to-DVD" mentality but adds that "of course, it would be great" to experience the movie in a proper theater setting one day. "Time will tell whether we are able to stage some special viewings in select movie theaters in Finland and maybe Sweden and Germany as well," he said. "But I'm gonna be super-happy with even a DVD release." The underlying themes of "Imaginarium" are a positive outlook and a certain "carpe diem" attitude to life. "Because 'Dark Passion Play' turned out to be the band's darkest and heaviest album to date, this time I wanted to be inspired by love and the beauty of the world," stated Holopainen.
