The Covid-19 Pandemic may still be with us, life attempts to go on. It actually has inspired some, Goldfinch CEO Kirsty Bell especially to make her the directorial debut with ‘Alone‘.Today Godlfinch have confirmed production for the film has begun in London.
Shot in black and white in a cinema verité style, the film itself tells the story of when lockdown is imposed, and the cast and crew of a film are taken from the set and sent home – alone. Actors without an audience. Directors without a script. Couples who fall apart. While others come together.
A feature film composed of six interlinked narratives, ‘Alone‘ explores what happens when we are freed from external distractions and forced to find the meaning in our lives and loves.
Conceived by Bell in the first week of lockdown and written in short order throughout lockdown, it is inspired by lockdown and was prepared for first day of Principle Photography throughout the last few month when Kirsty and the Goldfinch team went to work preparing logistics and COVID-19 safety measures for when filming could begin. It is set to complete mid-August, in time for an early 2021 release.
