Beyond Existence is a film made by industry professionals from the UK’s best TV shows, commercials and branded content campaigns. By night, they’re filmmakers who have just shot a Sci-Fi female-led feature film that passes the Bechdel test, and has a script that observes Blake Snyder’s ‘Save the Cat’ and Syd Field’s ‘Screenplay’ narrative structures.
To complete this film, the Beyond Existence team need one final favour from the public. In order for Beyond Existence to make it to festival submission deadlines the team need to pick up the pace, and hire the people who can get them there. Why should they compromise on quality when they’ve come so far?
As can be seen in the work-in-progress trailer, they still need to raise money to finesse and finish the VFX. They’ll also add original music, complete colour grade and a full sound mix. They created the trailer and a brief clip of the film, which was all captured in one shot, to give you a sense of what the final film will be like.
The film’s cast includes British acting talent Amelia Clay, Gary MacKay and Pauline Turner, and French star Vincent Vermignon. It is directed by Schuman Hoque.
Ellen is an agent sent on a mission to seek and destroy a professor who’s been illicitly trading government information to foreign territories. However, The Professor reveals a source of intelligence so powerful that Ellen has no choice but to spare The Professor’s life. The unlikely couple set across the barren landscapes of England on a new mission to save humankind.
Ellen, the ultimate professional, and The Professor, an old drunk with an acid tongue, don’t exactly make for the perfect travel companions. But the pair learn just how important their newfound relationship is when the road trip turns into a car chase.
As they flee from the Mysterious Man – a bounty hunter resolute that The Professor sticks to his original assignment, Ellen discovers that the technology assumed to make her civilisation superior, is also the source of a predetermined path of destruction: and the Professor is the instigator.
To save humanity, Ellen will go beyond fate, beyond destiny, and beyond existence.
