Visit the Grand Pavilion, designed and built by McGrew Studios’ Creative Director and Production Designer Hraefn Wulfson with his loyal, hardworking crew.

As you walk inside it you’ll enjoy dozens of master paintings by some of the world’s most famous fantasy artists, collected by Fantasy Con founder and visionary, Joshua Patel.

The outer walls of the Grand Pavilion will host the invited exhibits of selected Utah comic, sci-fi and fantasy film creators including:

Unicorn City
Gentlemen Broncos
The Shadow Cabal
Flight From Shadow
(and the list grows- stay tuned for details)

Our Flight From Shadow exhibit will feature the film’s custom tavern set plus selected costumes and props, as well as displays about the people behind this work– our producers, screenwriter, director, director of photography, costume designer, artisans, cast, crew, VFX wizards and sponsors.




Flight From Shadow is our non-monetized fan film that has big-budget production values.

The final version of Flight from Shadow debuts on September 6th, 2013 at 2pm at Salt Lake Comic Con!

(Any of you who are part of the cast or crew who wish to attend the screening, may do so at no charge. This will not allow you to attend SL Comic Con in general but only the screening).

Created by a dedicated group of Utah-based filmmakers, actors and artisans who generously gave their time, expertise and equipment to this project, Wheel of 9 Productions is enthusiastic about the release of its first film.

The film’s costumes, sets, props, miniatures and practical effects were designed by McGrew Studios’ art department and constructed with many hours of help from our staff and interns as well as from our friends in the creative community.

This film’s screenplay is based on an early chapter from The Eye of the World, first in the epic Wheel of Time book series by Robert Jordan.

After Jordan’s death the series was finished by BYU’s own Professor of Literature and renowned author Brandon Sanderson.

Our Flight From Shadow rough-cut debuted in February 2013 to excited audiences at Provo’s famous fantasy and speculative fiction literary conference, LTUE (Life, the Universe and Everything).

As a part of the Salt Lake Comic Con’s Film Festival this year, Flight From Shadow’s final cut will be shown along with a documentary, ..And The Wheel Turned, about the making of the film.

Once both films have screened in their final form at the Salt Lake Comic Con Film Festival, they will be released on select channels worldwide, free for everyone to share and enjoy.

We invite you to join us as our Flight From Shadow cast, crew, artisans and producers reconvene to give scheduled presentations, panels and appearances during Salt Lake Comic Con. We are excited to have you enjoy Comic Con with us as well as celebrate the culmination of this project!

All the best,

Jen McGrew
