A surreal anti-coming-of-age film following a young man offered an escape

A short summary of our project

A young man finds himself trapped in a never ending loop of youth. When he is offered an escape by a spiritual force in the forest, he is offered many paths that he cannot comprehend.

Who are we?

James Goodchild - Writer

James found his feet early in his love for creative writing and direction. His use of linguistic and cinematic writing style always provide exciting content for creative projects.

Laurie overton - director

Laurie established himself early on within the director role, providing leadership and creative skills. His confidence and determination have been exceedingly beneficial for past film projects. He is enthralled by the execution of story telling.


Olivia Ross - producer 

Olivia is a motivated and creative filmmaking student often liaising between art direction and producing roles. She loves to be involved with all types of roles, but adapts well to organising, scheduling and financing in pre-production. 

cait blake-mcEachran

ellie skelton - art director

Ellie specialises primarily in art direction, and brings creative energy to every project she contributes to. She is highly organised and punctual, while always bringing a positive attitude to stressful situations that often occur in pre-production.

lucas coyte - d.o.p

Having established himself as a talented cinematographer, Lucas has a strong sense of direction when it comes to filming productions. When working closely with writers, directors and art direction he provides flawless imagery.

Our story

A surreal anti-coming-of-age film following a young man offered an escape from his monotonous routine.

We have all known people that haven't progressed in their lives or experienced a difficult crossroad at some point and the anxiety that follows. The aim for this project is to execute this relatable experience, which appeals to every age demographic. A lot of our academic focus is not just in the studio, but also in our theory work which focuses on surrealism and realism.
