What started off as an idea discussed over a couple of cocktails a few months ago drove Krystabel (Producer) and Jameson (Director) into the experimental creation of the soon to be released short film ‘Hostage’.
Following the initial talk last August the story soon got developed and soon after they started recruiting. Both the actors and the crew alike were immediately intrigued with the plot and got on board without second thoughts.
It was an enjoyable experience, surrounded with a very good team and we hope that Hostage isn’t the only project we would be doing together.
The story is about a determined girl who, together with her new boyfriend, lets herself in her ex’s apartment while he is there in order to seek revenge. The actors are Alba Florian Viton, Jean Paul Carbonaro, Ingrid Bolger, Claudia Agius and Owen Bonello. Their crew also includes official photographer Daniel Borg from Daniel Borg-Photography, make-up artist Priscilla Falzon from Greeneyes makeup by Priscilla, title designer Charles Balzan, director of photography, John Nicholas Galea and audio person Joshua Said.
The filming is ready and Hostage is in the post-production stage, which should provide the final result by end of this year. On the Facebook page one can find the trailer of the film.
In 2015 Hostage will be submitted in various International short film festivals, Local festivals such as The Malta Short Film festival and eventually on Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube.
Hostage is shot in Maltese. However, it will be given subtitles and translated in 5 different languages for the benefit of foreigners; English, French, German, Spanish and Italian.
We are eager to share our project with Maltese and foreign viewers.
