Short Film directed, written, and produced by Toby Wilkins
STARING AT THE SUN premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival and won Best Horror Short at ScreamFest 2005. Starring UK actor Alec Newman (Last Kingdom) the short explores the concept of destiny, and the dire consequences of messing with it. This was my first full-scale production as a director. Shot on 35mm and finished as a full theatrical print, Staring at the Sun is now part of the permanent UCLA/Sundance film archive.
