The Unfortunate Fate of Felix Hill
DIRECTED BY KATRINA YTTEBORG | PRODUCTION : INSERT NAME PRODUCTIONS, UK | LENGTH : 12 MINUTES
The Unfortunate Fate of Felix Hill is a Romcom Fantasy, which explores the themes of strong friendships and sacrifice, as well as the phrase “You don`t know what you’ve got until it’s gone”.
The film is strongly inspired by Pushing Daisies (2007-2009) and A Series of Unfortunate Events (2017). It aimed to achieve a comedic, quirky, colourful style throughout the use of interior patterns. Some other visual inspirations come from Amelie (2001) and Her (2013).
The Unfortunate Fate of Felix Hill was shot on Blackmagic URSA mini with the use of Canon cinema lenses.

"The idea for this script came to me when I was watching an episode of the BBC series Doctor Who. There are these creatures called The Silence who you forget all about when you look away from them. I took that concept and asked myself how this would affect a normal human. Thus, Felix Hill was created. I have also drawn some inspiration from the movies 50 First Dates, directed by Peter Segal, Groundhog Day, directed by Harold Remis, and a Korean movie called The Beauty Inside, directed by Baek Jong-yul." - Katrina
