Plot: Julia is a last-minute replacement in a theatre production of the Henry James classic The Turn Of The Screw. Arriving late at night, Julia must immediately go on stage and perform a dress rehearsal to an empty auditorium.

As she interacts with other characters, an increasingly terrified Julia begins to suspect that it's not the fictitious house that's haunted, but the theatre itself.

The film has garnered several awards and been selected for a host of international festivals:

Winner - Best Picture: Istanbul Film Awards 2020

Winner - Best Horror Film: Chicago Indie Film Awards 2020

Boutique film-tech production company The Granary has released a fantastic demo of what its talented team can do shooting on a virtual LED stage.

With Too Fast, Tu Meke*, The Granary CEO Amber Marie Naveira says the team wanted to show how many different environments and setups could be virtually achieved in a short time.
Local content creators should feel even more empowered as they see it's possible to achieve Hollywood high-concept ideas on a budget, she says.
As a Māori filmmaker Amber Marie is excited by the ability to develop high-concept Indigenous-driven stories that include big world building environments.
*Too much!
