Film:

Four men happen to share the same living room rent free. Their interactions and mannerisms are quietened due to the fear of the unidentified Land lady living in one of the house's rooms.
It's Sunday which means two things: everyone is in and Christopher, as per Sunday, is making his famous finger fish sandwiches for dinner.
However, he never returns from his shopping. In the meantime, conflict escalates between the rest of the occupiers causing one of them to die from a heart attack. The rest of the group finds them selves at night struggling to figure out what to do next with the deceased whilst being obstructed by further abstract occurrences.


Our Approach:
The film starts off with five monologues from each of the main characters currently living in the shared space: four men and one girl who's in a relationship with one of them and who decided to stay over that night. Each of the monologues will explore the living situation they are in and the relationship with other occupiers.
The suspense aspect of the film will lay within the fact that most of the monologue and dialogue will be whispered, due to the characters always avoiding any interference with the mysterious creature, that is the landlady living next door. Although the style of the film will lean more towards horror/thriller aesthetic, the dialogues and monologues are constructed in a humorous style, closer to a theatrical play than a screen-play. Story of the film spans within the time period of 24h.

About us:
Our team is a mixture of: film-production graduates, RADA acting students, and actors with professional backgrounds - therefore most of the roles are already covered. Seven of us decided to create this project with a limitation of making it from scratch in one month's time; only using one location and two day shooting time. Now we are just looking for talented ,friendly and hardworking actors to fulfil our team and achieve our goal.
Our long term aim is to achieve success at the festivals and apply for further funding in order to develop the story into a feature film.
