Running Time: 09:06
Genre: Psychological Horror
Release Date: December 2011
Our first live action short is an original psychological/supernatural drama written, produced and directed by Andrew Murchie. The film was shot in October 2011 with post production done over the following three months and completed in late December 2011.
Following a motorcycle accident a dazed and confused bike driver returns home to find his house empty, desolate and for sale. Little does he realise the truth of the young couple looking to buy his house, nor the cyclical nightmare that unfolds.
Gary Lind plays the central role of Rip and without wanting to deliver any spoilers let’s say he’s got the biggest challenge in the amount of work he‘ll have to do. Apart from Gary’s stunning audition he really impressed us with his performance in an earlier short – The Confession that you can check out on YouTube – it’s well worth watching.
Lisa Glen plays Victoria, Rip’s wife and is central to the romance as she and Rip look for a house suitable to become a family home. Lisa is an experienced actress with a wide range of experience from stage, TV and film.
The rather eccentric estate agent showing them the “house of their dreams” is being played by Douglas Russell who can currently be seen on the big screen in “A Lonely Place to Die”. Doug has also starred in a number of feature films including “NEDS” & “Electric Man” and TV shows such as Taggart and Rebus. It was Doug’s performance in “Electric Man” as a somewhat beleaguered police man that inspired the development of the of the estate agent as a more comedic character, and it’s great that he joined us to bring it to life.
The fantastic crew on the shoot were incredibly supportive and did a phenominal job.
