Samhain/Limen (Halloween 2020)

‘Samhain/Limen’ is a short, spooky, unsettling Halloween film, created by amateur filmmaker and writer Cal Bannerman. It was filmed entirely on location at the Glasgow Necropolis, Glasgow, Scotland in October 2020. Music by Soularflair, ‘Even In My Dreams’ courtesy of the Free Music Archive, with permission from the artist.

Samhain is the name for the ancient Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season, and the beginning of the “darker half” of the year. Samhain was a liminal festival (hence ‘Limen’), when the boundary between this world and the Otherworld thinned, meaning that spirits could more easily come into our world on the night of Samhain. In more recent history, this pagan festival merged with the Christian ‘All Saints’ Day’ to become Halloween.

Pan is alone in their swivel chair at the flight desk, backlit by a couple weak cabin lights.

Anomaly (2020) – Sci-Fi Short Film

Watch my film here!

In Anomaly, humanity scours the far reaches of the cosmos for asteroids to mine and planets to inhabit, building spacestations as they go. For Pan, lone engineer, tasked with maintenance of the remotest outposts, life in outerspace is a drag. It’s hardly made more bearable by the constant presence of her AI companion, Dual – an acerbic autopilot with a dry wit and little else. When a rogue frequency promises an injection of adventure into an otherwise dull and lonely life, Pan leaps at the opportunity to track it to its source. Hyper-jumping to an unexplored region of space… what could possibly go wrong?
