WOW, DAILY DEVIATION!!!
Thanks Akajork!

This independent video has no distributor yet attached, therefore it depends on a lot of promotion on the web. Please don't hesitate and link it everywhere! :)
If you know any cool sites where it could be featured, feel free, if you love to promote it on your facebook / myspace accounts, etc, that would be awesome!!!

Promote any of the following links:

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-07-26
White Swan by `silvanderwoerd will absolutely blow your mind. It is fresh and unique in a lot of ways. A lot of hard work went into this masterpiece. This filmmaker never fails to deliver, and you will be captivated from start to finish. This film will rob you of speech if not leave you breathless. The haunting song and the visuals won't easily leave your thoughts. ( Suggested by Akajork and Featured by ElectrikPinkPirate )
