Genshi Media Group is proud to announce the completion and premier of our short film Isobel & The Witch Queen. This film will be premiering exclusively on January 27th, 2012 at the Macworld | iWorld event as part of the iPhone Filmmakers discussion panel.

Written and Directed by Genshi Media Group’s founder Craig Anthony Perkins, this 13 minute short film tells the story of Isobel, an 11 year old girl, dealing with the pain of her parent’s break up. She finds herself led into a magical dream realm, where its fantastic inhabitants mirror her earthly plight; pushing her forward on her quest to help her mother. After an encounter with the Witch Queen, Izzy returns eager to support her mother with the knowledge that her mother has had the power all along to start her new life…

The film was shot entirely on the iPhone 4S using the FiLMiC Pro and iSupr8 apps. Despite the fact that we received no funding or sponsorship for this short film, leaving us with a zero budget, we were still able to pull together and shoot a story as an example of what can be done with such limited resources.
