Director Statement

This film was originally meant to be a short film not exceeding 45mins in running time. Due to the creative free flowing process during principal photography, we ended up cutting a film that was just over 53mins long. Hence, I am proud of the efforts exerted by all members of the cast and crew. It's worthy of note that this film was made for the most part by 13-15 year old students at my community secondary school in North London. This includes the cinematography of the film, a minority of the film's score, all costume designs, illustrations, sound designs and the actors who are all gifted teenage actors in Year 10 at school.

This film also involved Prof Kip S Thorne (Executive Producer of Interstellar) advising me occasionally on the science of wormholes. Specifically this film deals with the idea of creating wormholes and using them to travel through a vast distance of space-time.

I made this film not only to show the very best acting talent and costume designing my students can pull off but also to produce a film that inspires new courses of thought into the realm of the unknown of which Science pioneers and to reaffirm our passion for making film professionally. Bearing in mind, most of our students involved in this film come from low income backgrounds, speak English as an additional language and have special educational needs. Therefore, this film was an inclusive film from the outset.

The pride we have in this film production was most visible when we screened the film to an audience of just staff, students and parents at The Phoenix Cinema (a non-paying audience).
