A guy wakes up in a different time, a different country, … a different body –
And starts to realize he’s now a part of something which is causing mysterious deaths across the globe.

This brain-teaser is one of the pet projects by a passionate writer and a filmmaking student trying to make an entry into this world. This is one of the short films to be used as a portfolio to find producers for future projects. The entire crew (including some very experienced professionals) are volunteers who are all doing it solely for passion and to create a core team for future.

Even though the short film is complete on its own, it actually is a pilot of episode of a potential web-series but that's a hope quite far-fetched at this stage, so it's not fair to make any promises. Whether we will release this on YouTube or go to producers to continue it as a web-series will be decided on seeing the initial response of viewers. However, we will allow actors to use footage in showreels with prior approval, just to make sure no spoilers are spread out.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

We're working on two other projects before we get to this one. So the actual filming may be 2-3 months down the line, which gives us good amount of time to find actors and plan other things.

Est time: 2-3 days of filming, after rehearsals which can be done online over video calls

Job payment

Unpaid – this is a collaboration opportunity - 2-3 days of filming, after rehearsals which can be done online over video calls

Expenses paid - Food expenses covered and TFL Underground Day Pass provided

Collaborations should create mutual benefit and are usually amateur, student or 'Time for Print' projects.

All advertisers agree to abide by the UK National Minimum Wage Act and are responsible for defining the nature of their production and any payment requirements. Find out more.


It would be great if the actors have a small video sample of any mysterious scene or even a homemade clip of how they would enact waking up in a strange house and walking around with suspicion trying to figure out where they are.
