Director Biography - Edward Harvey

Edward had great passion for the arts from an early age. He studied and received diplomas for both Design & Illustration and Digital Modelling & Animation. After finishing university he drifted away from the field of animation and explored his ever growing interest/talent for music. His first experiment with live-action film was making music videos for songs and pieces of music he had written and composed himself. After receiving great feedback from this he realised he had discovered a hidden talent for film. Since then he has evolved into a self-taught accomplished film maker specialising in directing and composing with his production studio Enigmatic Productions.

Director Statement

What attracted me to this project was the fact that it was a slow-burn, suspense-driven horror that hopefully scares the audience in a different way to your average jump-scare-flick by making them think about the situation, and continue thinking about it once the film is over, leaving them uneasy. That is the kind of film that interests me: one that lingers in the mind on the way home from the Cinema.
