Sci-fi drama, Our Song, is now live on Indiegogo and what a film this looks to be.
Official Synopsis: Emily, a dementia patient, and her husband Jack sit overlooking a beyond beautiful landscape. The sun shines, an old song plays, as they look back at their favourite memories from days gone by. Mix in a little science-fiction and a whole lot of heart, Our Song gives those suffering with the dementia a much needed voice.
From writer/director Scott Lyus, Silently Within Your Shadow, Echoes of the Passed, comes this new, exciting and important short film. Inspired by the filmmakers personal journey with his Nan over the last 4 years, Our Song is without doubt his most personal picture to date and
one he hopes will shine a light on the taboo that is mental disease, while giving back to the cause they are championing. With 15% of all money raised going to Alzheimer’s research.
Alongside the launch of the campaign, Lyus also announces the films lead actors brining
Emily and Jack to life; the incredible duo of Vivien Bridson and D.J. Bailey.
With an upcoming role in Disney’s Christopher Robin, Vivien Bridson is an actress with multiple years experience in the Film and TV world, and maybe best known for her feature role in Tom Six shock horror film The Human Centipede 2 as Mrs. Lomax, proving that she is no stranger to challenging and wildly different roles.
