Death by Powerpoint, our film project in collaboration with Brunel University is making great progress and the exciting film launch awaits! It will be presented to industry partners, investors and academic collaborators during a spooky but fun night where they will be plenty of treats but no tricks.
It’s Halloween party night on campus but for Fenny Godspeed and her fellow students, a horror screenwriting evening class becomes a nightmare. Can Fenny use the rules of writing horror to survive? Next slide please!
Aimed at a broad international audience of young film fans, Death by PowerPoint is a commercial horror-comedy feature film with a difference. Its production process involves a unique collaboration between Brunel University London, producers Reel Fearz, and Ash Verma Consulting.

Inspiring The Next Generation Of Film Makers
