The short film titled 'Maximus' is a story about a young boy called Maximus who has been diagnosed with cancer and told from the point of view of a 7 year old girl called India (Maximus' sister), to someone who is very special and important to Maximus.

We want to create something that shows how young minds and imaginations help children to deal with such situations, as well as heroise those who treat and medicate along the way.

This is will be the second short film from SubMotion; a small independent company based in Norfolk. Their first being an adaptation of a true story which went on to screen at 40 festivals worldwide, winning 20 awards, was long listed for a BAFTA and in consideration for the Oscars at the end of 2019.

They have the skillset to bring impactful and emotive stores to light and this is topic close to our hearts that we would love to share with the world and raise awareness of the battle with cancer, with an uplifting message.
