Following in the footsteps of SUNDAYS, their debut concept short success which turned heads worldwide last year, comes LOST BOY, the hugely awaited punk sci-fi feature project which is next in-line from visionary outfit PostPanic Pictures.
Directed by Ash Thorp and Anthony Scott Burns, the LOST BOY concept short which is released today, lays down the gauntlet once again by showcasing the creative ambitions of Hollywood’s next generation of storytellers.
“Our future is full of bold ideas, but none so bold as the idea that we may not have one.” - Unknown
LOST BOY is an ambitious sci-fi concept heavily influenced by the American action classics and Japanese samurai films. LOST BOY represents the second feature in a series of director-driven film projects from the Amsterdam-based production company, PostPanic Pictures. In similar exposure to SUNDAYS, the aim of PostPanic Pictures is to set the international community alight once again, this time with the LOST BOY concept short.
Anthony Scott Burns and Ash Thorp are a familiar name in the international creative community, having built up a great reputation for their notable contributions to feature films and commercial work. Anthony Scott Burns is also currently attached to the high profile sci-fi feature ALPHA, written by New York Times bestselling author Daniel H. Wilson, and produced by Brad Pitt. Having worked individually in the creative industry for the past 15 years, the directing partnership of Ash Thorp and Anthony Scott Burns was a natural next step for the instinctually creatively-matched pair, and they debuted as a directing duo for the prestigious 2014 OFFF Festival (Barcelona) main titles.
The idea of LOST BOY was born years back by Ash Thorp’s passion for sketching out these unique characters and scenarios, which quickly gained a huge fan base. Once Anthony Scott Burns and Ash Thorp joined together for collaborative efforts on LOST BOY, it further evolved with a fascinating storyline and uncompromising vision of society’s far distant future sure to surprise audiences.
Filmed on location in Spain and then brought back to Amsterdam for post-production by the award-winning in-house VFX team at PostPanic, LOST BOY will hopefully set the international community alight once again with that special bit of PostPanic Pictures magic.
""Lost Boy is the ultimate passion project. A machine fuelled by the ultra cool. Driven by two of my favourite visionary directors. A world so extreme, they had to create a new universe: Welcome to Lost Boy." " Mischa Rozema, Producer, PostPanic Pictures
""For me, LOST BOY is an attempt to get back to that child-like mind that would sit and draw worlds that live in my mind for hours on end. It's a form of language for me both artistically and conceptually." " ASH THORP, CO-DIRECTOR, LOST BOY
""For PostPanic Pictures this seems like the perfect project to follow up SUNDAYS with. We have been great fans of Thorp and Scott-Burns's work over the years and LOST BOY has the promise of an amazing visual experience coupled with unique story telling. The perfect recipe. We applied our expertise to develop and produce a killer Concept Short and hopefully its going to blow everyone away." " Jules Tervoort, Producer PostPanic Pictures
""We are extremely excited to have brought LOST BOY into a new realm of consciousness and couldn’t be more pleased to have teamed up with the PostPanic family to make this a reality." " ASH THORP & ANTHONY SCOTT-BURNS, DIRECTORS, LOST BOY
