Rhiwbina scifi film features local scene

The producers of made-in-Rhiwbina short scifi film Annalium 8: Sssss have released two new images from their location shoots – including an eerie shot of a familiar local scene.

The film was written by Rhiwbina-born-and-raised Robert Lancey, who still lives in the area.

He is jointly producing the film with Andy Weltch of local communications consultancy Weltch Media and part of the Rhiwbina Info team.

One of the new images released this week shows a deserted street scene and a man lying dead at a crossroads. It’s a crossroads you might recognise in the heart of Rhiwbina village.

The script, which has been well received in international competitions, is set in a time when a catastrophe has seemingly killed all animal life. But a surviving scientist in full hazmat suit encounters a young girl in a forest – and she appears to be healthy and well…

Directed by Andrew Griffin and starring Francesca Louise White, the film also features Minaii Baelfire, who has the distinction of being the first Black Young Elsa in a stage production of Frozen.

The film is now in post-production with the editor. The producers aim to run a crowdfunding campaign to help with the post-production costs, offering supporters a range of perks. For the latest updates you can follow progress on the film’s social media accounts on Twitter and Instagram.
