Beside the Lakehouse (2018)
In Development | UK | LGBT Directors: Ian Powell; and George Scott
An acclaimed gay screenwriter invites two young actors to his lakeside cabin to improvise a new project based on his own past. But what are his real motives and who is the ghostly young man who seems to watch them from the forest and swims in the lake at night?
Carrying on the themes of "Seeing Heaven"", "Beside the Lake house" is a story of inter-genrational love that also makes comments on the "me too" movement and how the adoption of a muse can lead to something more sinister. A meditation on the creative process, the film is a very contained LGBT drama which will be filmed in the Scottish countryside in 2019
