FLITE Trailer Released Tuesday 9 May 2023
Set in a semi-submerged London of 2053, FLITE is the directorial and writing debut of Oscar winning VFX Supervisor and Framestore Chief Creative Officer, Tim Webber (Gravity, The Dark Knight). The experimental and futuristic film explores the nascent and underground practice of ‘memory visualisation’ and the trailer is out now.
“I had been exploring the idea of a ‘Memory Investigator’ while playing with a strong visual image I had in mind of a girl on a hoverboard teetering in a broken window of a luxury highrise, deciding whether to flee” explains Webber. “I realised we could bring these strands together and tell the story of Stevie, a young, champion hoverboarder, desperate to break free from an oppressive manager, through the memory of a stranger anxious to help her.
Imprisoned in a luxury high-rise apartment by her controlling manager, Stevie - the reigning World hoverboard champion - is helped by the kindness of a courageous stranger, and set on a daring and precarious escape. All doesn’t quite go to plan and much of the film is told through the memory recall of the stranger.
