Mouse

Mouse is a mystery/sci-fi story about a man who wakes to find himself in a building with a thousand clones of himself. Every move he makes seems to replicate or predict the actions of another clone. Can he escape what seems to be the inevitable? Or is he simply playing out the result of a pre-determined game...

Mouse is similar in style and tone to Bladerunner, Pandorum, Primer and Moon. All of those films also use sci-fi to magnify insights into human nature rather than as a gimmick. 

Filming on Mouse took place during August 2012 and is a strong example of low budget filmmaking... mostly one location, one actor and no dialogue. A very visual story which is epic in ambition but very achievable in reality.

Crowd funding

Mouse is a UK based crowdfunded production. Crowdfunding relies on many small contributions from individiuals and companies that cover the cost of the production which Creativity Backgrounds was delighted to have the opportunity to support.

Producer Justin Tagg explains...

"Just when we thought we had tied up all of our relationships with great, creative companies we come acrosss Creativity Backgrounds. They're so excited about showing how their papers can be used that they have supplied us with a roll of blue CHROMA KEY paper and BLACKOUT paper. I can only just begin to describe how useful this material was to us. The paper has been used as part of our blue screen setup to digitally extend out corridor whislt the blackout paper meant we could keep daylight out of the set and control the light with our practical lights from the inside without cutting any daylight from the areas we needed it (our briefing table and storyboard wall, for example). Thank you to all at Creativity Backgrounds! "
