Overlook Films have been making short films in the South West since 2007. We’ve made films for a number of different directors, working with dozens of actors and crew members.
We are always keen to find new talent and to give anyone a chance to get involved with film-making. Take a look at some of the films we have been making and get in touch if you have a film you want to make or if you want to get involved.
Some of our finished films can be viewed here on our website, while others are only available on DVD.
Please contact us if you would like more information.
The Levels - short
QUOTATION: “Seek peace, and pursue it.” Proverbs 34:14
The Levels is a contemporary crime drama; a violent tale of love, murder and revenge, set against the haunting landscape of the Somerset Levels. Michael and all those around him are slowly drawn towards an unavoidable and explosive confrontation. By blending the modern crime drama with the Somerset landscape, The Levels pays homage to the mythology of the American West in a uniquely British folk tale.

One Day - short
“One Day…” was released in 2009 and was immediately selected for the Jersey International Film Festival.
It’s a short drama about an alienated salesman who fantasises about a life under water. It’s a clever blend of puppetry, in-camera effects and docu-drama that gets to the heart of the human condition.
Some audience comments about “One Day…”
“Technically outstanding” "Visually fantastic” “a wonderful piece of craftsmanship” “A very atmosheric piece of film making” “Brilliant”
