Lepidopterist (2021)

A young scientist drives away from a lab with a large box in the back of her van. But what does it contain? What follows is a tense adventure story about man's relationship with nature, and the lengths we can go to to protect the things we love. 

The film - made in association with Toothpix - was originally shot and edited within two days (and released under the name 'FIFTY/FIFTY') as our first entry into the Sci-Fi London 48hr Film Competition.​ However, we love the film and its characters so much that we decided to create an extended cut to submit to festivals - complete with extra scenes and a new name! 

"Beautiful as expected. Not the ending I expected (in a good way). Gorgeous!"

(Judges' Reviews, Beeston Film Festival)

"Visually impressive, the film opens up many ideas and mysteries... the structure keeps you interested, along with the cinematography (which) gave you a sense of being there."

Film Hub Wales & National Lottery UK)
