Listed by View details

Synopsis: Sam finds a mantis with his best friend, Dimitri. They marvel at its beauty and plan to keep it forever. Its discovery however, puts Sam on a path that leads him to a future of sinister art, heartbreak, and murder.

Idea: We will be making an 8-12 minute proof of concept film. The proof of concept film script is a snippet of the beginning of the Mantis TV pilot we are trying to pitch to be commissioned.

Once the proof of concept is shot, it will be screened at Raindance Film Festival 2020, and a few more screenings will be held for feedback, we will then be pitching the Pilot to production companies.

We have a super low budget however we want the film to have to have a really highest production value as we hope to take the p.o.c to Cannes Film Festival with us to meet with investors.
