Nikhil Bhagat has debuted an impressive short film called “As They Continue to Fall”, a dark dystopian fantasy written by screenwriter C. Robert Cargill (Dr. Strange, Sinister).
The film tells the story of a homeless man who hunts fallen angels in a dystopian society filled with crime and corruption. Haunted by a dark past, yet hopeful for the future, he continues to hunt as they continue to fall.
“I am extremely lucky and grateful that C. Robert Cargill took the time to write a script for me to direct,” said Bhagat. “My goal for this short was to honor his script by making it feel as grounded and realistic as possible. I wanted to create a cinematic and mainstream film that the audiences hopefully enjoy”
In addition to Cargill’s involvement, As They Continue to Fall came to life with the help of many talented industry professionals including cinematographer Noah Rosenthal (Fat Kid Rules the World), editor Tommy Aagaard (The Nice Guys, Avengers), sound designer Mike Miller and visual effects artists Andy Wong and Ben Hall.
As They Continue to Fall is currently being pitched as a feature.
