Under A Burnt Orange Sky is my first serious foray into filmmaking. A lighthearted romp through a Fallout/Mad-Max inspired post-apocalypse, UBOS aims not for thematic profundity but is rather an attempt at technical mastery: can our modest team make some pretty pictures which, when pieced together in this magic we call cinema, make an audience feel suspense or excitement? Even just a little?
Entirely self-funded and self-produced, UBOS was also a experiment to see how close I can get, with my limited means, to the scale and scope of the films which inspire me. It was a true labour of love, and I hope it shows. Enjoy!
