We are very excited to announce that we have another (yes, another) short film in early stages of development, after optioning an original screenplay for a mystery thriller from writer Greg Stewart. The project, titled ‘Birthday Cards’, now joins our growing slate of upcoming short films, and is set to go into production in the summer of 2020.
The story is something of a hybrid of genres, with mystery and magic at the heart, combined with contrasting moments of dark comedy and intense thrills. As soon as we were sent the original draft of this script, we knew we had to bring this story to life, and we can’t wait to put the project together.
This is a truly unique story, so it’s difficult to pin down any particular similarities or influences, but we reckon fans of Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman’s ‘Ghost Stories’ will really dig what we’re going for here. There’s also hints of the darker tones you’d find in cult classics like the ‘Hammer House of Horror’ series or anthology film ‘From Beyond The Grave’ by Amicus Productions.
Keep an eye on our Twitter feed for updates on this project, and all our other films.
