‘God of Light’ is an experimental thriller film exploring intergenerational tensions between the old and the young, specifically the subjugation of the old due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The film follows BILL, an elderly man living in an aged care facility desperate to regain control of his life. Having developed an obsession with traffic lights and the power they possess over the movements of people, he or she attempts to build his own to escape the facility. However, the heartless "caretaker" Matt stands in the way.

The film contains no dialogue.

The film will be approximately four minutes long.

It will be a shoot of 1 day (maximum working hours will be 10 hours and 45 minutes including breaks).

Shooting will take place in one location within or not far from Sydney's Eastern Suburbs.

--- ABOUT THE DIRECTOR ---

My name is William Jack Thaxter. I have been making movies throughout the majority of my life, and produced two short films last year which both received a Band 6 and state rankings in the HSC. One of which was also a finalist for Best Young Filmmaker at the Indie Short Fest in Los Angeles.

I am now in my first year studying at the Victorian College of the Arts in Film & Television in Melbourne.

The film will be completed by Wednesday 4th of November and will be submitted to film festivals internationally.

This shoot will be produced under covid restrictions and made covid safely.
