"Lost in the Dark" was written in 6 days by myself and Dana Newell of GMR Pictures.  We then went straight on to complete preproduction, production, and post within only two weeks.  The film was in submission to the 168 Film Festival, a competition where filmmakers are given a verse from the bible, and asked to make a short film based on that verse in 168 hours.  Over twenty people came together to make this film a reality.  It was a massive challenge but we met it head on, and the result is something we're all very proud of.  The film has been nominated for 8 awards, including best film.  That means that out of 156 entries from around the globe, we are now one of seven films competing for the top prize: a 1 million dollar development deal with Echolight Studios to make a feature film!
