Based on the Bondlock fanfic “Loyal in Adversity”, the short film “The Hacker” introduces you to a 17-year-old protagonist shortly after being captured. Inside a derelict barn he meets Mrs Marlowe, the government official who has the power to grant him a second chance – or ruin his life forever.
Duration: 08:09 minutes
Completed: February 2017
Budget: about 5.000€
After a swift post-production, we are applying to festivals.
Much like fandom and fanfic, filmmaking is a team effort.
Just like every writer needs their beta, a "low budget" project like ours wouldn't make it to the first day of filming without an inspiring community of supporters. Thanks to all who have supported us on Indiegogo so we can translate our vision onto the screen!
