Our First Film Is Here

Great news! A month earlier than we originally planned, our first short film is now available online for everyone to watch. At just 10 minutes long, you can easily squeeze a viewing of ‘Layla’ into your busy schedules. Please support indie film and give it a watch (as many times as you want) and spread the word. You can watch ‘Layla’ in full, free of charge here.

Interesting facts: we made this film on an iPhone 6 (because you can do that kinda thing nowadays) and shot the whole thing in just one day. This first venture into filmmaking from directors Jakob Lewis Barnes and Samuel James is rather experimental, and with a budget of just £200, ‘Layla’ was always going to be a challenge, but hopefully you’ll enjoy the film. Please let us know your thoughts.

Layla (2016); Drama – Horror – Fantasy

Synopsis: Trapped and mistreated by her oppressive captor, Layla longs to escape and enjoy the freedom of the outside world. Will the mysterious woman in red offer Layla everything she wants?

Layla: Teaser Trailer

We are delighted to present to you the first (and maybe only) trailer for our first short film, ‘Layla’. The film – a 10 minute drama with elements of mild horror and fantasy – is not currently available for general viewing. 

We hope you’re excited to see ‘Layla’ in its entirety, and that this teaser keeps you happy whilst we await an official date of release online. In the meantime, why not check out the first review of ‘Layla’, from HC Movie Reviews.

Layla Gets A Poster

Great news – our first film production is complete! The short film, titled ‘Layla’, is not available for general viewing just yet though, so we have a little teaser/treat for you in the meantime.

That image above, is the official poster for ‘Layla’ and just happens to be our favourite shot from the film. This is your best look yet at the titular character, so hopefully this keeps you happy until we can confirm a date for the film to be released online.

Meet Layla

Okay, so you can’t quite meet Layla yet, but what you have here is the first glimpse of our titular character. If only that darn lightbulb wasn’t in the way! Who knows what the next still will reveal?

Our first filmmaking project is getting closer and closer to completion – we just need to add some music and tidy up a couple of things – so get ready to be bombarded with more ‘Layla’ images, posters and links in 2016.

Sneak Peek At Our First Project

Our first filmmaking project – a short film titled ‘Layla’ – is in post-production and nearing completion. During the final stages of production, we will be updating you all with various sneak peeks and stills from the film. 

So, without further ado, here’s a look at the first three stills we’ve taken from the footage.

What do you think? What’s the deal with these Black and Red characters? Who set fire to that sign? Please feel free to share your thoughts with us and keep an eye out for further updates.
