“Make your choice, adventurous Stranger, Strike the bell and bide the danger, Or wonder, till it drives you mad, What would have followed if you had.” ~ C.S. Lewis

Q: What is Project Senium?

A: Project Senium is group of filmmakers attempting to do something that hasn't quite been done before: preserve an abandoned mental hospital in a cinematic short film. This is not intended as a tour video, a reality TV show,  a scripted movie, or even a strictly-informative documentary. What we're trying to do is translate the experience of being there into a short, compact cinematic film. 

Q: What does Project Senium mean? 

A: "Senium" is Latin for "decay". While decay is commonly used to describe places such as these, this particular Latin word for decay does not mean "rotting" but carries the idea of melancholy deterioration, decline, gloom, or feebleness from old age. 

Q: Where is this place? 

A: In order to circumvent directly causing further vandalism to these places we do not disclose the location of any work presented here. 

Q: Do you break into these places?

A: Project Senium's footage and photos are obtained through explicitly non-destructive means. We do not damage, nor do we condone any damage done to the property. Causing damage only shortens the life span of these places.
