The Production Journey

Directors Statement

"New Born projects a dystopian world where the natural is archaic and the artificial is prevailing. Society has been corrupted by the development of female artificial intelligence, manipulating the views of the modern citizen and forcing all women (real and artificial) into a form of modern slavery. I wanted to create a science fiction film that highlights unconscious issues of today and provides Sci-Fi fans with a film that propels them into the future.
As we live in a rapidly changing world, this films story and 'possible future' is relevant in a time when treatment of others is a key debate around the world."

The Production Journey

Behind the scenes

Cut 7 - (14-12-2019).00_03_01_07.Still01
The original idea for the film was conceived back at the start of 2018 and was written to depict a female protagonist trapped in an artificial world which had not learned from past mistakes. The original film written in 2018 was actually a sequel to the film that became 'New Born'. The idea was left in a drawer for one year, where it grew in the writers mind till 2019. In 2019 Oli wrote two new versions of the 2018 screenplay, each from different perspectives before writing the prequel being the film put into production. 
Like many short films, a challenge the film faced was a limited budget. It became clear in the early stages that the only way to successfully turnaround production would be to shoot the film in a short amount of time. After the cast was confirmed and pre-production was making fast progress, the director and main cast got together for rehersal and make-up testing. Due to the thorough pre-production and hardworking cast & crew, the film wrapped it's entire production in just two days. You can see pictures of the production below.
The film then entered Post-Production, where it was assembled by Writer/Director Oli Greck along side the complex sound design by Mauro Serra and expert compositing by Zafer Ercevik. Meanwhile in Russia, the films composer Monika Mia was hard at work putting together an excellent original score reminiscent for Sci-Fi fans. Once the final cut was screen tested, progress was made on the finishing touches, completing the vision for the film. 'New Born' hit the festival circuit at the start of the global pandemic and has since been well received around the globe. Later in 2021, the film will finish it's time on it's festival run an be officially released. Sign up above to get the latest news for the release of the film.
