Award nominated and critically acclaimed Sydney production house 'LoneRoss Productions' are producing their next short film narrative with award nominated director Imogen Ross and award winning DOP Dean Francis, to provide a chilling look into the surrealness of deconversion and the questioning of one's faith.

"A life planned for a purpose is soon unravelled in a surreal encounter with the harsh reality of what lies beyond death."

ABSIT is a short film that explores the natural desire to comprehend the unknown and understand how to live in a world seemingly without purpose.

Kiran Aarons is a 30 year old man who has lived his life to the fullest with God's intentions in mind. He has kept to a strict regime of faith and commitment, and has never felt doubt in his conviction. An accident at a local pool, brought about by a competitive mindset, brings Kiran to his knees at a surreal interaction with what lies beyond death. He battles doubt, fear, irresponsibility and dread as he tries to search for his true meaning on Earth.


The project will be shot over four Saturdays in the month of July. (Not all extras and featured extras will be required for all these shoots).

All shoots will be fully rigged and catered.
