Logline

A woman exchanges phone calls with her friends and family while moving house, ultimately revealing a deeper and unexpected reality.

Synopsis

Brittany (early-30s) is moving house. Throughout the day, Brittany exchanges phone calls with friends and family discussing plans, relationships, memories, inside jokes, and dreams. Each conversation reflects the warmth and love that surround her.

During these conversations, we learn that Brittany is in the early stages of serious illness. She faces her condition with a blend of humour, positivity, and acceptance. Her older sister playfully remarks that Brittany has ten good years left, a joke that reflects their open, transparent approach to her diagnosis. The gravity of Brittany's situation remains understated, focusing on her vibrant interactions and strong connections with loved ones.

"Moving On" is an exploration of love, friendship, community, and the strength found in vulnerability. It is a near-realtime glimpse into a courageous woman's journey through the twilight of her independence.

How we collaborate

This project is part of Hightail Entertainment's Open Collaborations programme. Our film collaborations bring together a full cast and crew of talented individuals who are all working to increase their skills and showreels. As a part of each collaboration, you’ll get to experience:

  • Working in your desired role on a well-funded production
  • Full on-screen and IMDB credit
  • Full travel and other necessary expenses paid
  • Creative input during pre-production and on set
  • Fair and transparent points / percentage of any future project revenue
  • Transparency around budget and expenses
  • A fun, supportive, and friendly environment to learn and network in
  • A high-quality film to add to your showreel or portfolio

Our productions are not paid for anyone, including producers and directors. We appreciate that these collaborations are not right for established industry professionals, and are instead for new talents who want to learn and grow together, in a well-funded and high-quality environment.
