We are producing a 4 minute short film called Harriet that tells the story of a young and vulnerable 19 year old woman Harriet and her abusive relationship with 22 year old boyfriend Darryl.

Short Story Synopsis

HARRIET is a psychological thriller set in a dystopian world. Harriet is trapped in an abusive relationship with her partner Darryl. She has given herself a few choices that will decide not only her fate.

To be directed by Amelia Sillat, who has studied film in Copenhagen and done several short film and music video projects in the past. Amelia is a director whose mission is to tell stories of different women. She was drawn to his project because of the theme of domestic abuse and the matter of having or not having a choice in certain situations in life. Amelia intends to create a suspenseful and true atmosphere for this story of being trapped. Past work available upon application.

Written by Giselle Turner who has extensive production experience, particularly as a cinematographer, and has now turned her hand to screenwriting that incorporates her strong visual background. 

With producer Tiger Watts, a lover of all things visual. Tiger studied Level 3 TV and Film Production in Swindon, England for two years at college. She has a huge passion in photography and supporting anyone trying to tell stories visually.
