A routine trip to the shop turns into a hellish nightmare for Joanna, as she is forced to battle the demons occupying the darkest recesses of her mind. The Intruder is a visual tale depicting the harrowing effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Our goal is to shine a light on this serious issue that many people go through and are still scared to talk about. This is an issue present around us on a daily basis, living in the darkness. We believe that more awareness should be made around PTSD and help those afflicted to speak about their experiences.The film specifically explores the thought of being trapped inside your own mind, and the consequences when that is a reality.
The film is being directed by Peter Kane. “I was drawn to the serious nature of the story and it’s a subject matter that should be told on screen.” – Peter Kane, Peter is an award winning film director whose feature film The Gamekeeper won best film at the Madhouse Film Festival. The film also won the Audience award at the London Digital Film Festival as well as being official selection at several other festivals.
The script was written by award winning screenwriter Carly Street whose last short script, Fragile Storm starring Lance Henricksen (Aliens, Millennium) has won numerous awards on its festival run. “It’s an important topic which people need to understand is ok to talk about. “There are too many people suffering in silence and it’s disgusting that society continues to ignore the cries of help from the families of those affected. Hopefully we can shine a light on it and create a discussion to highlight support out there” – Carly Street.
Both share the same passion for exploring delicate topics and real struggles and through the use of storytelling and want to have a positive impact on society with this endearing short film. The filming will take place later this year in Crewe, Cheshire and Wallsend, North Tyneside. Once the campaign for crowd funding has ended, auditioning for actors will commence.
