why are we making this film?
We are aiming to raise £2,000 for the making of MA Filmmaking graduation short film “The Isle”.
This story is about loneliness. Everyone has a fear of loneliness, and everyone suffers from it more or less. Mental health is a topic receiving more and more attention these days. In modern society, technology has alienated the connections between independent individuals. The protagonist Violet, is a talented woman, but her persuasion of freedom and ideal dooms her to be lonely.
I am the producer of The Isle, Liz. I have previously worked with the director Han Xiao. Our previous project is Broken Lock, and have received the highest score of the class. We have also sent it to several film festivals. Han has a melancholy, slow-paced story telling style, and is good at exploring female mental world.
