After seeing the short film at Closed Up Cinema last year, the sci-fi is now available for public viewing.
At just 17 years old, Jones leads from his first short ‘O2’, to present his BFI Future funded film that stars the BAFTA winner Rebecca Manley and Vauxhall Jermaine. At such a young age, the film showcased Jones advanced eyes for cinematography, editing and directing. When we first saw it at Close Up, we were amazed once we heard that the Jones was just a sophomore in the independent film game. Gradually, we’re seeing an influx of apocalyptic films and feature films taking over the UK film scene, and Sam Jones represents an exciting new future of filmmakers who are setting the next chapter for Britain in the information age.
Since the release, ‘Lifeline’ has earned Jones four awards under his belt and has been screened at the British Urban Film Festival, London Shorts Film Festival and Kino Shorts. He’s now moving forward onto his next movie project entitled ‘Bright Lights’, coming out soon this year.
