Production Details:
We are producing a 4-minute short film called “Wall” that tells the story of two teenagers that are trapped behind a mysterious wall. They are forced to perform increasingly difficult tasks to secure their freedom… but it is just a game for some people.

Short Story Synopsis:
Cassius wakes to find himself trapped in a dark room with a mysterious luminous wall. Behind it are his wealthy parents, ignorant of his calls for help. Here he meets Camellia, also trapped. She explains that to have a chance of freedom, they must perform the tasks assigned, if they do, a light will turn on and the next task will commence. As they proceed through the emotional and challenging tasks it becomes clear that only one can triumph. Can Cassius make his parents proud in the final test against Camellia, or will his conscience get the better of him… Who is behind this?

We are producing the short as part of our course at the London Film Academy (LFA). It is fully funded and will be shot on the ARRI Alexa kit with Zeiss CP2 Lenses and a Sony FS7.

To be directed by Dan Edridge who has experience working on short films and has recently directed several student films. Dan was drawn to this project because of the underlying themes of morality, wealth and the power dynamics between those that hold it and those who do not.

Written by Ka lee Kelly Chong who is highly passionate about screenwriting. This story was inspired by the anime “The Promised Neverland” and the movie and book series “The Hunger Games” and means a lot to her as it talks about class inequalities and how they reflect on people’s social wellbeing.

This will be shot with the help of producer Valeriia Dumbravanu who is extremely dedicated and organised to whom the short film set is not uncommon and who is greatly passionate about filmmaking.
