New Light Pictures, an Algarve producer awarded for its institutional tourism videos, will launch the short film «Payload» on digital platforms, on January 3, 2021.
It is an «short» action, held in 2014 and shot in the municipality of Loulé.
It was driven by a British actor who came into contact with the producer, after watching, on YouTube, the production «O Comando» on Youtube, a low-budget war story that 10 years ago caused media exposure.
The actor sought to assemble a team capable of producing a project that would allow him to catapult his career to Hollywood. The goal was achieved only with a production trailer.
The recordings of «Payload» took place in the facilities of the Hotel Conrad, in Quinta do Lago, and in the garage of producer and director Patrício Faísca, where a root decor was built that could be destroyed by the actors during a fight scene.
The cast of the short film has the special participation of Vera Kolodzig and Diogo Amaral. The production also has an official soundtrack performed by Marisa Liz.
Until the official launch date (January 3), New Light Pictures is making extras and informational content available on its social networks.
The «short» will be available on IGTV, FBWatch and Youtube.
