It's Time to Talk Story...

I've been avoiding this post for a while... It's a difficult one, becuase I want you all to know about the story of The City of Ligthts, but at the same time, I don't want to give it away. After all, words can only do so much. It's the visuals of this film that make it what it is.

Let me start with this. It's our 'Concept Capsule'. The single sentence that tells the story of our film.

The City of Lights is the story of an unlikely companionship in a post-apocalyptic world of isolation and cutthroat survival.

I also want to tell you about the film's characters, and the best way to do that is with their original, short descriptions.

Megs…A rugged, rebellious girl who has lost all hope in humanity and wants to escape the desolate world around her. She finds safe refuge in the storage unit, creating a home within its tight walls.


Jade…An orphaned girl who believes shadows are out to get her within the storage unit (her only perception of the world) and desires to escape to the outside world but is afraid to venture alone.

Intruders…A mob mentality group that takes advantage of the fortune of others in order to survive in the post-apocalyptic era.

That's all I'm going to give you for now... After all, you don't want to know everything about the movie, right?

Stay tuned for more story updates, I'll be giving you more later on down the road.
