Black Box Volume One: The Apartment (2F, 2M)

What if you could go back and find out exactly where everything went wrong?

Struggling to accept a recent break up, a young man relives the highs and lows of his relationship before resorting to a powerful new technology in an effort to ease his pain.

A black mirror style 12 minute short exploring loss, friendship and how new technology may affect the grieving process. Aiming to shoot on location in Brighton later this year (ideally October) depending on actor availability.

The film is self-funded by myself and the Director of Photography (professional photographer and videographer Doug Elliott), so the budget is relatively tight. This means it is likely to be expenses only, but we want this to be of as much benefit to everyone as possible, and we’re also looking to produce several short films this year and the next with better paid opportunities down the line.

We love to make things, and we’re looking for enthusiastic actors who want to collaborate and create something great together. Happy to accept both showreels and self-taped demos. Script available on request.
