Orson Cornick grew up in Surrey, England where his parents ran a hospital for sick & injured wildlife. He has always had a love for film and has created numerous little films over the years. In 2014 he created a little silent film with his daughter called 'She Sells Seashells' about a mysterious young girl who sold seashells. After the film gained some local attention he went on to make the acclaimed 'Take Your Time' and then 'Pillow'. His new film 'CHOKER' will start a journey into the creation of environmentally conscious narrative shorts of which this will be the first. A follow-up to CHOKER is already in pre-production.
I think that as short film makers we have a unique position to be a force for good and tell stories that would otherwise have no voice.
As a girl drops from the sky onto a crowded beach, a mysterious man drives at breakneck speed towards her.
CHOKER is a unique narrative take on one of the biggest challenges facing our planet. Due to its 'no dialogue' nature, it is a film that we hope will resonate with audiences around the world.
We believe that there needs to be more environmentally focused narrative fiction that will both entertain and educate in equal measure. CHOKER will be the first of a number we plan to make here in Cornwall... each with an unexpected twist
