Sophie's Fortune (Short Film)


2013 | Short Film| UK

Imagination meets reality. Action meets adventure. The hunt is on!

In the multi-award winning action adventure, Brendan gets involved in a 'Father's only' treasure hunt for the sake of his 7 year old niece Sophie. But what Brendan begins to realise is that the parents' imagination may have gotten the better of them and it might not be so easy bringing home Sophie's Fortune.

"The idea of making a summer blockbuster style UK action/adventure appealed to us, in part, because we realised no one was doing anything like it (fan films aside) and also because it would be something we'd personally really like to watch. This is a £2,000 nostalgic love letter to anyone who feels the way we do about 80's action/adventure. This was our summer film school for working with big ensemble casts, child actors, stunt choreography, visual effects and the oddity that is UK weather."
