What's this about?
Based on the short film Fairies, a film festival smash hit, young co-writer/director Tom Gustafson has created an exuberant teen musical comedy, which
brims with memorable original music, fresh and lively performances from his young ensemble, and a light, sure-handed comedic touch. Included in the
cast is a shining performance from Robin Williams' 18-year old daughter Zelda Williams (House of D).
Co-writer/director Gustafson made his first Super 8 Claymation short at age 9, and graduated from Northwestern with a film degree. After early freelance
production gigs on shows like Michael Moore's The Awful Truth, he stumbled into location casting and most recently had stints of bothPirates of the Caribbean
sequels. "I got to watch amazing directors like Sam Mendes on Road to Perdition and Peter Weir on Master and Commander", he says. Gustafson then
embarked on making several award-winning shorts. After hugely successful and satisfying festival experiences with his hit short film Faeries, Gustafson decided to
expand the short into the feature film - Were The World Mine. The film marks Gustafson's directorial feature film debut.
