Experiencing Interruptions?


When five individuals awaken in a room, each impaired in a very specific way; they have no memory of how they got there, nor any clue as to the reason they have been brought together. The only information they have is that of a mysterious girl's dead body laying on the floor in front of them, and a note claiming that they are all in someway responsible for her death. What unfolds is a desperate search for answers that will lead them back into their past, reflecting on choices that have brought them to this moment, and the revelation that they all may have more in common than they realise.

Director Statement

Miscreation is a story that holds a strong message about the effects of bullying at its heart. It stands to exhibit how the actions of tormentors can heavily impact on their victims through both physical and verbal abuse, and how one traumatic incident can change the course of a person’s life forever.
Trauma is cyclical. It creeps in when you least expect, and drags you back to a moment you’ve spent a long time trying to distance yourself from. Miscreation attempts to recreate the feeling of trauma, in one continuous, uninterrupted, and ultimately, cyclical shot.
Moving between time and space, the film engages the audience and asks them to uncover and empathise with the pain associated with bullying and abuse, by venturing on a journey into the mind of one of its victims. As the story unfolds and our victim's mind unravels, so too does the set as objects within the scene slowly transition and appear, providing subtle clues as to the answers the audience is searching for and hinting at the obscure nature of the reality in which the characters exist. This culminates in an ending that leaves viewers open to the perceptions of whether they were in fact watching a dream state or whether they have just bared witness to the shocking events that have yet to come.
Happy endings do not always exist, but lessons do. So as filmmakers, we wanted to show the rawness present in our story and share with our audiences a lesson that bullying and intimidation can have a very harsh ripple effect if not addressed immediately.
