A dangerous voyeur uses an online home B&B service to travel across the UK and makes a troubling home video along the way.
Using the found footage genre to create a true sense of reality mixed with the audiences own anxieties, 'Surf' explores the dangers of trust granted though an online world.
Mike J Scott, Director
Making films that lack the tedium of pleasantry, Mike is a visual artist who started in experimental film using sinister imagery along with an intricate editing style. He has now moved on to drama whilst keeping the same tones that have worked successfully for him in the past. He is a big advocate of the found footage genre and how immersive it can be for the audience, Mike is looking forward to creating a found footage thriller with more of an aesthetically cinematic edge whilst still engaging the audience in a beliveable reality.
