EQ

EQ is a sci-fi and SFX film that explores the Emotional Intelligence decline in 2020 London. We meet Olivia, a Chemical Engineer who has developed a drug to cure Emotional Intelligence. And we follow the story of Georgia, Olivia's assistant, who decides to test the drug before it's released. We discover the positive effects the drug has on Georgia's relationship with her boyfriend Mark. But that's not all we discover about the drug...

Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

Shakira and Kayleigh are both students on the MA Acting for Screen course at Central. This film is part of their final project, for which they must produce a 10 minute film. The projects allows students to act in the film, whilst undertaking a crew role, a fantastic way to understand film-making from both perspectives.

Established in 2005 Acting for Screen was one of the first specialist courses in screen acting in the UK. The course aims to build on and enhance core technical skills and produce creative practitioners who have a specific interest in performing on screen.

Cast

Shakira Francis - Olivia 

Shakira is a film and TV actress in the UK, studying an MA in Acting for Screen at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. This film will allow Shakira to explore eccentricity and futurism in a professional character. At Central, Shakira has already featured in two short films, Creative Writing (2015) and We Will Meet Again (2015). Shakira is looking forward to adding more film to her portfolio and is excited to showcase her training in this film.

Kayleigh O'Connor - Georgia

Kayleigh is also a film and TV actress in the UK, studying an MA in Acting for Screen at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. In contrast to Olivia, Kayleigh will explore the character of Georgia by looking at the ideology of being emotionally unintelligent and how this affects personality changeability and relationships. Kayleigh has short film experience including Bombshell in Penguin (2013), Mia in Birthcloud (2015) and Lily in Always On (2015). Kayleigh can't wait to see EQ come to life!
