SUPINE — Short Film /2017/

Sylvie is a taxidermist content with being isolated from people in her large house in the mountains of France – her only company is her work. That is until Oz, an American hitchhiker stumbles upon her path. The two become close and Sylvie begins to question what it means to live.


In our latest effort we are financing and producing a niche horror short film for festival distribution. Supine is a short horror drama that plays on poetry, fantasy, and grotesque elements. Written and directed by up and coming Canadian director Nicole Goode, it was shot over a period of 6 days on location in Northern Bohemia with the use of multiple practical effects and special effects makeup.

In addition to general shooting logistics and project coordination, the LAB provided full accommodation and catering for cast and crew. Furthermore, the LAB organized shooting permissions for multiple closed off stretches of public road around the city of Úštěk. The project was completed with the ARRI Alexa Classic camera and a Zeiss CP2 lens compendium provided by Prague Film School.

The project was realized with support from the cities of Úštěk and Litoměřice and the Ustecky Kraj film commission.


In a collaborative effort with SYPE Sound Studio, DPOST Prague and cinematographer Cedric Larvoire, the production wrapped this March and the final film aims to be completed and ready for distribution in November/December 2017.
