We are producing this short as part of our course at The London Film Academy, one of the top film schools in London. It is fully funded and will be shot on the top-of-the-line ARRI Alexa.

Synopsis:
Zoe, an influencer with a substantial social media following, is releasing a trailer for her first movie. Anxious about its response, all hell breaks loose when her phone dies and she cannot find a charger. Withdrawn from her ‘online world’, she ravages through her reality in pursuit of a solution. Slowly, stark differences between how Zoe perceives the world and the actual reality of it are unveiled. Her mother and sister both begin to change drastically before her eyes, but will Zoe see past her own desire and face the real issues at hand?

The film is to be directed by Akhilesh Tirumala, an up-and-coming film director with extensive production experience. Akhilesh has just over 10 years of experience as a screenwriter, with several scripts currently in development. He was particularly drawn to direct this project because the story challenges the influence of social media in the modern era. He believes the script to be very ‘Black Mirror’ and is excited to work on the thrilling project.

Lado Margania, our producer, was involved with archaeology projects and tech start-ups before he decided to pursue career as filmmaker. In 2019 he joined LFA where he worked on the short films “Man on the bridge” as DOP and screenwriter, and on “Sanity Republique” as a director.

Auditions for Zoe and Ava are taking place in The London Film Academy on the 5th of August.

Auditions for Ellaine will be held online via Zoom on the 6th.
