THE END is a short film about Jamie, a London teenager bent on having the perfect night out. What he doesn’t realise is that the night he’s chosen to escape the clutches of his parents is also the night of the apocalypse. The results are both tragic and thrilling. The motivation behind THE END is simple: to create a short format film that can, for a very small budget, and without the restraints of normal cinematic productions, challenge epic Hollywood action storylines, from the perspective of the boy on the street; to achieve these goals, THE END combines slick action with a powerful story. Featuring emotional performances from Gus Lewis (who portrayed a young Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins) and Angelica Mandy (who acted as Gabrielle Delacour in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), THE END is alive with young British acting talent. Following in the wake of films such as Monsters, THE END hopes to democratise short film production for masses of online viewers, and demonstrate that all that’s required for gripping and moving action is a good screenplay and the will to try for top drawer special effects, even on a low budget. A glimpse of the film can currently be found on its VIMEO PAGE, whilst post-production funding is underway in its KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN, which raised close to $1,000 in its first 24 hours of existence. THE END was written and directed by filmmaker Ted Marcus, produced on a tiny budget by Fred Rowson, and shot on a Canon 5d mkII by up-and-coming director of photography, Oliver Kember. It is being edited by Cannes Young Director Award Nominated John X. Carey, and executive produced by Pierre E. Plassart.
