The concept for The Elemental came from a book of Victorian
ghost stories which Director Robert Sproul-Cran found in his
Grandma's house when he was about ten. It described an
Elemental as a creature of dire evil which lurked in dark corners.
If you thought you saw one out of the corner of your eye you
had to look away - because if you looked right at it you would die.

So it might be there - but you can't check! A recipe for total
terror, and many nights spent in bed with the light on.

The challenge was to create a film where you couldn't show
the thing which terrified the protagonist - a real directing
challenge.

Robert reckoned that the key was to create the best possible
monster - then show it as little as possible. The Elemental was
created out of clay then cast in latex. In total it took over a year
to build and is seen in the film for 14 frames.
