Tweetable Logline:

How can you find yourself, if you don’t even know who you are? Learn to Wraith…and be whoever you want to be…

Elevator Pitch:

Bored kitchen salesman, Darren Jackson, allows his hunger for financial success to dominate his life.  He hires Jean-Paul Fetch, an elderly spiritualist, to teach him how to wraith;  to send his spirit into another person’s body and control them for a short time.  But when a wraithing expedition ends and Darren finds that he cannot return to his own body because it has disappeared, he begins a terrifying quest to find himself, literally.  Uncovering some horrifying truths along the way, Darren realises the value of what he once had, and prepares to fight to get his life back…

Production Team:

Directors: Ed Botham, Dave Hyde
Producer: Beth Norwood
Cinematographers: Dima Kalenda, Sam Cronin
Exec. Producers: Chris Leonard, Peter Wobser

About the Production:

“Wraith is a spectacular supernatural thriller of greed, love and trust, and is the second undergraduate film made in the UK. With an ambitious crew of 35 and a cast over nearly 40, we are challenging ourselves to prove that a sensational film can be made on a micro-budget. With an exciting original story, we believe Wraith has the chance to make a real impact on the student/independent film network.” — Beth Norwood

Current Status:

In production.
