The Northstar Spirit was a concept I had while I was reading about Native American spirituality and the Great Spirit as something that lives through each in every one of us as a universal force of energy. When I came up with this idea of the Northstar Spirit, I wanted it to be a spiritual force that manifested as inner guidance and power within us. So the Northstar Warrior was born, I wanted to create a character that embodied the human spirit, a character that would be a good role model to our young girls and women.
What started out as a grad school thesis project in 2012, quickly grew to attract many people as a movement with Northstar Warrior embodying themes of female empowerment, creating one’s destiny, following the path unknown, and connecting to a universal force that lies deep within all of us. Prism Light Studios was formed in 2015 as more artists and talented individuals wanted to get involved in the production of the short film.
