Class of 2009, Michael Henry | ‘Time and Place’ Trailer

Michael Henry_2009GradPassionate filmmaker Michael Henry set up Quandary Productions. He said members of the indie production team strive to make both short and feature films of a professional quality, on the slimmest of budgets.” The latest ‘low budget epic film’ is called a Time and Place, which is due to be screened in October 2014.  In the meantime, Mike said you can see the official trailer:

We’ve finally been able to release the Official Trailer to the film, which we feel captures the tone of the intense dramatic moments and the surreal comedic moments. So far, feedback is looking great, with a lot of people eager to watch the film upon release.

‘TIME AND PLACE’ is our fifth feature film. Having crowdfunded nine months ago, shooting wrapped in March this year, and we are currently working on Post-Production. Our intention is to have the film completed by October and hold an exclusive screening with cast and crew in Lincoln, before sending the film off to festivals around the world at the end of the year. It’s our biggest, most ambitious project to date; one which is proving to be our most visually interesting work, and with the highest dramatic stakes yet.

When scientists reveal the universe has stopped expanding, and will soon begin to contract, time collapses for one man. Things lose their meaning, and moral boundaries seem absurd. ‘TIME AND PLACE’ is a low-budget epic in which one man has to come to terms with the consequences of his actions, knowing that some day all that surrounds him will cease to exist.

The Big Crunch is one of the scenarios predicted by scientists in which the Universe may end. Just like many others, it is based on Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity. That is, if the Big Bang describes how the Universe most possibly began, the Big Crunch describes how it will end as a consequence of that beginning. It tells us that the Universe’s expansion, which is due to the Big Bang, will not continue forever. Instead, at a certain point in time, it will stop expanding and collapse into itself, pulling everything with it until it eventually turns into the biggest black hole ever. We all know how everything is squeezed when in that hole; hence the name Big Crunch. For scientists to predict with certainty the possibility of a Big Crunch, they will have to determine certain properties of the Universe. One of them is its density. It is believed that if the density is larger than a certain value, known as the critical density, an eventual collapse is highly possible.

When considering the idea that the universe, and time itself, could quite possibly stop and begin to contract, sending us back from the present, into the past and make us relive every moment backwards, it offers up the question – ‘What would you do if you knew there would be no consequences to your actions?’ If you start at point A, and point C is where things begin to go backwards, when you return from point C to point B in the timeline of your life, the events at point C technically no longer exist, and therefore the consequences of your actions at points A and B no long exist either. This is the central focus of the film.
