SoulMatrix was the most recent of our zero-budget short films, shot entirely in one day around Basingstoke, Hampshire.
A comedic look at loneliness in an ever-increasingly connected world, SoulMatrix was our first experimentation with visual effects and specially-produced props - who wouldn't want a Holobox? The film stars prolific stand up comedian Paul F. Taylor, who has performed packed-out one-man shows at the Edinburgh Festival, and Lauren Shotton, a founding member of the improv comedy group Chuckleduster and also appeared in the Harry Potter series.
SoulMatrix was awarded Best Comedy, Best Editing and a prestigious Diamond award at BIAFF, and also selected to represent the UK at UNICA 2014.
