Imagine a second wave of coronavirus has forced New Zealand back into lockdown�
That's what producers Liz DiFiore and Peter Salmon did when they came up with the idea for INSiDE, an offbeat eight-part thriller TV series. Filmed over two weeks during lockdown level 2 (and on a microbudget!) the series follows reclusive tech expert Rose McWhitney who hacks into strangers' video calls to get a hit of human interaction. When she unexpectedly reconnects with an old school bully, Rose suddenly finds herself sharing a bubble with a haunting vision from her past. Now she's got to work out what is real and what is just pandemic-induced paranoia.
WIFT members Shoshana McCallum and Thomas Sainsbury were on the writing team, while Sarah Voon oversaw costume. INSiDE was funded through NZonAir's Rapid Response Funding as a result of COVID 19 restrictions on the film industry.
