Synopsis: BILL tells the story of a grieving widow who employs the dark arts to see her husband once more.
The film is a DIY Self Funded Short Film inspired by the Ghost our two young sons would talk to in the ceiling called ‘Bill’. We were chilled to the bone and the events inspired this 3 minute film which premiered at the prestigious Encounters Short Film Festival 2019. The film was partially conceived as a challenge to shoot a short film in our own house, with our own props in just 1 day. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak our festival submission strategy has been cut short so we have decided to release the project online.
The film’s official premiere was at FILM SHORTAGE (11/05/2020) who called it ‘A simple, yet incredibly terrifying little premise’. Flip Screen remarked that it ‘…will haunt viewers longer then most big budget Hollywood horrors’ and Realm of Horror said it was ‘…reminiscent of a Tales from the Crypt story’.
The cast are Roxanna Vilk, Chris Bianchi & Hugo Stanbury
The crew include Writer/Director/Producer: Dan Gitsham & Sophie Mair, Art Director/Costume: Sophie Mair, Director of Photography: Tomoi Summers, Sound/Music: Dave Colebrook, Editor: Dan Gitsham & James Taggart, VFX: Matt Harris-Freeth & Neil Giles, Camera Assistant: Jack Hayter, Production Assistant: Kate Fairhurst
