Daimonion - the much-anticipated directorial debut from award-winning action actress Naomi Karpati.
Flash forward a few years & Naomi saw an opportunity to bring Chimera to life again, or more so the character of Layla Wolf. Having taken on an actress Jessica Stafford as her protégé to train for martial arts & stunt work in the film industry, Naomi planned to take Jessica along to Indonesia with her, to train with Silat Bakti Negara Guru, Gusman Wiranata. Naomi had trained with Gusman previously & wanted to return to his training centre to make a documentary on the Master & his teachings. With an incredible destination on the horizon & an actress that bore a resemblance to what Naomi had pictured Layla to be, the discussion was laid on the table – could they also film a short film while they were there? Could they do the impossible & pull of this production so soon and on such a tight schedule?
