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.
