“Artificial Horizon” commenced filming today in Surrey, Stealth Media Group announced.
The film is a post-apocalyptic thriller which focuses on what could happen if something isn’t done regarding the current overuse of antibiotics?
Eight survivors escape to the skies in a badly damaged Boeing 747 to avoid a pandemic that is ravaging the earth. While they realise there’s nowhere safe on the ground, things start to go wrong in the air. How long can they stay airborne? And more importantly what will be waiting for them when they land?
First day shoot involves utilizing the Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey (the same location as the Top Gear test track) featuring a full size Boeing 747.
“Artificial Horizon will have elements of ‘Contagion’ and the ‘The Road’, and many of the action sequences will be set on board a 747,” says Anthony Woodley the film’s director. “We love Sci-Fi. We love thrillers. And we love films that make you think,” co-writer Anthony Woodley adds.
“We are conscious that the final product, while having the polished finish of a Hollywood thriller, keeps all the charm and wit of a UK independent film.”
“We were concerned that the subject matter could come across as a bit heavy,” Woodley says, “and while antibiotic resistance is a very real threat which we want to bring attention to, we’ve worked hard on the script and there are some laughs along the way.”
Anthony’s first film Sci-Fi Thriller “Outpost 11″ is on release in the UK and doing well that Stealth Media was involved in.
“We at Stealth are pleased to be working with Antony again who we consider to be a real find and a director to watch with whom we support and look forward to a long working relationship with in the future.” Says Michael Cowan.
Among those cast in “Artificial Horizon”, Jack Gordon (“Captain America”; pictured above), Zora Bishop (“Closed Circuit”; pictured above), Edmund Kingsley (“Hugo”) and Karen Byrson (“Shameless”).
