Here’s a clip from my new short Insomniacs. The film is an emotionally charged, romantic drama about 2 people struggling with chronic insomnia. I wanted to articulate the heartbeat of a sleepless night. To capture a dreamy and seductive mood...In this scene, Theo (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) observes Jade (Vanessa Kirby) from a distance. Theo becomes intrigued by someone suffering from a similar restlessness, attracted as he watches Jade move about. Insomniacs will premiere this month at Spokane International Film Festival and British Shorts Film Festival, Berlin. Stay tuned for future announcements via the film’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/insomniacsfilm) and my Twitter (https://twitter.com/chintzer). I am very excited for what 2014 has in store for the Insomniacs cast. Vanessa Kirby has a supporting role in the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending, starring Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. Henry Lloyd-Hughes is starring opposite Mia Wasikowska in Madame Bovary. And Charlotte Hope continues her role as Myranda in Season 4 of Game of Thrones. And looking forward, I am currently developing my first feature. All I can say at the moment is it has a similar feel to Insomniacs aesthetically, tonally, and thematically. Hope you all get a chance to see Insomniacs in 2014. See Charles Chintzer Lai’s prior short BLUE MONDAY (Winner of 2013 NoBudge Awards for BEST DRAMA and BEST FEMALE PERFORMANCE) on NoBudge here.
