You may recall a short while back, that we announced we had optioned an exciting comedy screenplay from writer Eileen Wilson. Well, we can now reveal a few more details about that project, which is really kicking into gear now with pre-production. First of all, we now have an official title! Check out this title card teaser for ‘The Grim Truth’ below.

The short film will be framed as a mockumentary, and will follow the work and personal life of a certain harbinger of death as he faces his busiest period of the year – Halloween. We don’t want to give away too much here, but you can expect an official synopsis soon. What we can say though, is that we promise plenty of laughs, and a story with real heart too. Principal photography on this project is due to commence at the end of October 2019, with cast and crew announcements imminent.

Our director for the project, Sam Comrie, had this to say: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be stepping behind the camera later this year for The Grim Truth. When Jakob introduced me to an early draft of Eileen Wilson’s script a few months ago, whilst cliche to say, I knew we had something special. There’s a real opportunity here to share something poignant with you about self love and connectivity, both being values that JumpCut Studios endorse in their ethos.”
