FACTORY293 is an epic short film production
that aims to bring Soviet-era, snow swept Russia to Western Australia.
FACTORY293 is a drama/slow building thriller to be under 20 minutes long. Although a war film, the story doesn't unfold at the typically portrayed war front, but within a grimy munitions factory full of women machinists, trapped by a blizzard.
In a remote part of the dark and despondent world of Stalin’s war-torn Union of the Soviet Socialist Republic, Comrade Grigor, Manager of Munitions FACTORY293, faces the realities of his existence. Despite the infatuation of his female factory workforce, he is drawn to increasingly melancholic thoughts – Stalin, his leader, has abandoned him.
With a howling blizzard outside, the power is suddenly cut, rudely interrupting Grigor’s intent to take decisive action. In a flurry to restore the power before the inspectors arrive, Grigor directs two of his female machinists into the raging blizzard to investigate.
This project will test and develop a diverse range of technical skill sets across all facets of production. We want to demonstrate our capacity to achieve high production values on a tiny budget in Western Australia.
Rest assured, this production is not merely fixated on demonstrating technical prowess. First and foremost, the production aims to bring a unique and compelling story to life.
