AT THE CROSS ROADS
Hello my name is Vanessa de Silva, I have personally worked on over 5 student
short films including my own and three others for the 48 hour film festival.This short film is being made as my final third year film project for my bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at University of Canterbury. I have written the script together with a friend of mine. I am the director, producer and editor of this short film and have a great crew working alongside me.
So what is AT THE CROSS ROADS all about?
This story AT THE CROSS ROADS is about a young bandit finally caught for his crimes against the state by a notorious law man, Marshall E. Brown.
Over the course of the journey they face personal challenges and overcoming any odds the the wild west may throw at them along the way, the both gain a new respect towards each other.
Faced by an ambush of outlaws, the Bandit is given a choice of freedom, but at a price. Drama unfolds in the ultimate test of redemption.
