Independent filmmaker, who is one of our inspirational LSFM Industry Mentors, 2009 alumnus Michael Henry has posted an update on the latest development at Quandary Productions.
We’ve recently released the official trailer to our latest feature film ‘MUTE’, written and directed by me, and here’s the synopsis: Verbal communication has been outlawed by the rich elite, in an attempt to stop people speaking out against the conditions they live in. The new laws are enforced by the security department of the ‘Spectrum’ corporation – a huge conglomerate of the five biggest companies in the world. A voyeuristic filmmaker falls in love with an underground spoken word artist. As they find themselves unable to talk to one another, they start to make small films and write letters to one another. As the poet speaks out against ‘Spectrum’ and its owners, their lives become in danger. Will they be able to save each other in time?
To be released May of this year, on various platforms, including 4k Ultra HD, we’ll be looking to make this a huge hit at festivals around the world.Continue reading →

When first starting out as a filmmaker it can be hard to get your work shown. This is something we appreciated and wish to remedy within the local area.

From 2009 LSM graduate Michael Henry, indie filmmaker and founder of Quandary Productions: Please spread the word about crowdfunding for our next feature. ‘TIME AND PLACE’? will be 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. Time collapses, things lose their meaning, and moral boundaries seem absurd. Here’s the trailer.
