The Slo Light Film is inspired by real life cases of the objectification and subjugation of women in the digital age, femmes fatales and female revenge thrillers.

A collaboration between legendary composer Neil Davidge of Massive Attack, New York based producer Cynthia Angel and director Dominic Lahiff The Slo Light Film will use every track from Neil's debut solo album to tell a story of pain, vengeance and the unspoken bond that exists between women, sisters, mothers and their children.

FILM SYNOPSIS

In the wake of his mother's death JOSEPH an affluent college graduate leads an aimless debauched existence.  When Joseph meets the beautiful and mysterious NAOUMIE she seems to him nothing more than his latest sexual conquest, but over time she moves further into his closely guarded inner life.

In an abandoned country house SHANNON reminisces over the childhood memories of her younger, more vulnerable sister RAYE. When Shannon receives a phone call from Naoumie, it is revealed that Joseph has played a devastating role in Raye’s life, and the two women plan to enact a terrible, final vengeance.

Maybe you've seen our teaser trailer on YouTube. But for those of you hearing about us now for the first time  we want to bring this story to life and can only do this with your help.

We’ve laid the groundwork for the feature film to-be — thousands of hours spent developing, writing and re-writing the script, mapping out our shots and storyboards, shaping our vision for the film and shooting and editing our trailer — take a peek at just a small sample of it:

Besides our endless appreciation and gratitude to all our donors we have a bunch of rewards straight from the heart which will bring our backers further into the world of the film and which span Neil Davidge's rich and wonderful musical career.

A Day In Bristol With Neil Davidge And An Original 60 Second Neil Davidge Musical Composition:

The oldest daughter of Colombian immigrants Cynthia Angel was born and raised in Jackson Heights, Queens. She graduated Bryant High School in Astoria before attending John Jay College For Criminal Justice. She graduated John Jay with an honors degree in criminal psychology. A film buff at an early age with an interest in photography, Cynthia would take snapshots whenever she had the opportunity.

Cynthia started film production work in 2008. From 2008—2011, Cynthia worked as a production manager at Gravity Inc on a string of highly successful Hollywood Films for Universal.

In 2012, following work on The Bourne Legacy, Cynthia was hired by the American Museum Of Natural History to co-produce its biggest attraction- Space Show V and its spin-off the Pre-Show Film. It was here she first had the opportunity to collaborate with producer Neil Davidge and director Dominic Lahiff on Discovering The Universe.

Since 2013 Cynthia has furthered her expertise, producing and post producing commercials for advertising agencies McGarry Bowen, JWT, Saatchi & Saatchi, MRY, Anomaly and BBDO.

Neil Davidge is a British music producer, songwriter and film soundtrack composer. He is best known as the long-term co-writer, producer and key sonic facilitator for Massive Attack. As Massive Attack, Neil’s credits include the Platinum-selling, award-winning albums Mezzanine, 100th Window and Heligoland. 

Neil has also composed and orchestrated film soundtracks for feature film projects including Push ,Clash of the Titans for Warner Bros, the Sundance Grand Jury prize-winning Trouble The Water and the new Canal + TV series Spotless.  In 2012 Neil's soundtrack for Microsoft Studios Halo 4 went on to set the official record as the highest-charting video game score ever.

Dominic Lahiff is a British director and video artist. His credits include work for Converse, L’Oreal, Guerlain, Pepsi and Levi’s. Dominic’s commercial work has led to commissions to create longer form cinema for Kunsthalle Wien, Paris Galerie Jerome de Noirment and AMNH.

In 2013, Dominic was commissioned to write and direct the film Discovering The Universe for the American Museum Of Natural History. A collaboration with Cynthia Angel and Neil Daivdge the film was commercially and critically successful. Discovering The Universe continues to play daily at New York’s Hayden Planetarium, proving the team's ability to create highly profitable, critically revered films for mass audiences. 

SLO LIGHT is Dominic’s feature film debut as writer and director.

KICKSTARTER VIDEO - INTERVIEW SHOOT By Kelsey Smith. VIDEO EDIT by Travis Hoggard.

The Slo Light Film eschews classical cinematic narrative structure by shifting mid way from the male perspective to the female perspective and it is for this reason that we have chosen Kickstarter to connect with our audience.

Acting as both a powerful cautionary tale and a new way to experience Neil's beautiful music only with your help can we tell this story and give a voice to the voiceless through provocative cinematic imagery.

Risks and challenges

Our greatest challenge is to raise the necessary funds to bring this project to life. To do justice to this story, we want to tell it using the most resonant innovative means possible. Producing a film is difficult; making a film that is both artistically-unique and ideas driven is even more challenging. However, we have spent the last two years working on this project, its themes are incredibly important to us, with our vast experience and passion for the film, we are determined to see it through to the end.
