Year unknown. Population Zero. Welcome to LOST BOY.
After delivering a euphoric science fiction masterpiece in 2015 with Sundays – winner of our Top Short of the Year – PostPanic Pictures brilliantly followed up on their own footsteps and blessing us with another punk sci-fi marvel: Lost Boy. Directed by Ash Thorp and Anthony Scott Burns, the LOST BOY concept short lays down the gauntlet once again on the creative ambitions being introduced by Hollywood’s next generation of storytellers.
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
The film astounds the audience with its incredible conceptual environment, in a rather unusual and almost unearthly setting. The cinematography brought forward sets the highest standards in short films, and in mainstream features as well.
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
The ambitious film is heavily influenced by the American action classics and Japanese samurai films. 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. Let’s not forget to mention the film’s quite epic soundtrack, which will still resonate through your bones minutes after you’re done.
