Speakers: Simon Horrocks and Cast

Silent Eye is a British science fiction anthology series shot entirely on smartphones. The series is written and directed by Simon Horrocks, independent filmmaker, digital content producer and professional composer. Each episode is a tale containing a mixture of science fiction, suspense, fantasy and psychological thriller.

After the screening of the latest Silent Eye episode, Simon Horrocks and his crew will introduce you to the world of smartphone filmmaking and talk about how they were able to shoot 4 episodes with almost no budget and a tiny crew.

Simon Horrocks

Simon’s debut feature film Third Contact was shot on an HV30 consumer camcorder for a total budget of £4000 and completed in 2012. Simon filmed virtually without a crew, operating the camera himself. After successfully raising £15,000 on kickstarter for theatrical distribution, the film received its global premiere at the BFI IMAX on 2 September 2013. When many of the film’s online supporters came forward to help, Horrocks worked with them to run cinema on demand campaigns. Using indiegogo (where people wishing to attend would pledge for seats at the show), Simon took the film to cinemas in USA, Canada, Belgium, Switzerland and around the UK.

In 2014, Simon embarked on his second major film project, Kosmos. Written as a 5-part free-to-view web series, the show was funded using kickstarter, raising £31,826 at the end of 2014. When a £3000 pledge dropped, leaving the production short of funds, Simon ran a 2nd campaign to cover the loss, reaching the target in only 94 minutes. Shooting took place over 3 weeks in February and March 2015. Simon took on all post-production tasks himself, teaching himself basic CGI knowledge to complete the film’s SciFi effects. With the series left on a giant cliff-hanger, Simon decided to continue the story as a SciFi book called A Race Of Minds, which he wrote in 2016 and published via Amazon in early 2017.
