20/11/18 2 many executives announce new short film

A Bullet Wasted is a short film, one of six winners of a new Directors UK and Arri competition Challenge Trinity .

Arri have developed a spectacularly flexible, game-changing version of the Steadicam – the Trinity. Directors UK / Arri asked for stories that could be told in one single uninterrupted take.

A Bullet Wasted is a powerful story about the horrors of war and division written by Milton & Tilton. It will be produced by an experienced team, including director George Milton, producer Mike Downs, and Oscar-nominated cinematographer Robbie Ryan.

This new short is a co-production between 2ME and Electric Light Studios https://www.els.tv, and will be shot in early April 2019 – it’s a one day shoot where the team will be aiming to achieve one perfect take!
