Future Feeling

Part eco-fiction, part haunted-house tale, Future Feeling is our new short film about a family on the island of Nantucket bracing for a hurricane headed their way. As the storm comes closer and the power goes out, strange things begin to happen in the house that force the family to reimagine their relationship with nature leaving them forever transformed in the process.

Future Feeling is our first self produced short film and truly a labour of love. We will be entering it as a short in film festivals beginning next year and are aiming for a 2024 release!
