Time Teens: The Beginning

Time travel exists.
William is a Tourasaiche (pilgrim time traveller) in charge of policing time crime in Scotland. When he is sent a letter from the past telling him of a darker future, he must decide what is important to him.
Filmed with no Production Budget, with voluntary professional artists, Time Teens is a prequel to a potential TV Series by the same name, with the film setting up the adventures of the future teenage cast.

Thank you to all!
Time Teens was filmed on £0 budget with only post production and music taking up any donations given by generous locals.
For my first feature film this was a great honour. We were enthused by the community who came together with us and the impressive cast to bring our end product we now share with the world.
Filmed in under 3 weeks with one camera, in dozens of locations, we attempted to bring as much production value to our independent wee film as possible.
