Crew Wanted for 10 Minute One Shot Escape Room Student Thriller

Crew Wanted for 10 Minute One Shot Escape Room Student Thriller

Manchester, UK
Listed by View details

Trivial is an experimental short film about the different mindsets people have when thrown into an unimaginable situation. 4 gameshow contestants are waiting for the show to begin when suddenly a 10 minute timer appears and they are locked in with no context. Should they be escaping? Should they work together, or will only one of them win? The film dives into the psychological terror of the situation, can these people trust each other, and what motivation could lead to someone conducting this twisted game.


This film will be conducted as the final major project for my masters. I am looking for:

Director of Photography
1) A talented DoP to help me bring the concept to light and pull off this difficult feat of a fully choreographed 10 minute sequence. I will assist in the development of the movement and be able to provide camera equipment (cameras, lenses, DJI ronin) however if there is any of your own you have I will be willing to discuss about it.

Sound Operator
2) A skilled sound operator to assist in recording the sound for the film, dialogue and movements made by the actors. The environment may limit the use of a boom pole so I am willing to discuss alternative methods.

Lighting Operator
3) An experienced lighting operator to assist in the lighting for the film. The setting of a one shot in an entire room means lighting equipment will be difficult to use so alternative methods will be required.

The project will be submitted to short film festivals and uploaded to YouTube, this will also serve as a great opportunity to add high quality content to showreels.

I am a student filmmaker who has helped direct, produce and edit dozens of short films over 4 years and I am looking to create Trivial for the purpose of putting a unique twist on a well known genre, as well as and creating an enjoyable experience. I have previously worked attempted one shots and I am wanting to take the challenge up another level.
