SHORT FILM - 15 MIN
THE INNER is a psychological thriller/sci-fi short film that explores the themes of existence, fate, identity and perception. Marcus wakes up in another person's body, and has to try and discern reality from fantasy and deal with the fact that he may, or may not, be going mad. The story builds to an intense psychological crescendo to finally reach reality.
This ambitious production intends to provoke with the use of unusual techniques and explore a high concept of filmmaking.
THE INNER explores the boundaries of imaginary and reality of our subconscious mind. In our modern world, what happens when we are unable to tell the real from the unreal?
