UK Production Company, Blame The Consumer, are back again with another thrilling film trailer that certainly seems to have a storyline that’ll intrigue, excite and dispel any doubts about UK cinema being dull, uninventive and unoriginal. Blame The Consumer, a company who specialise in (but are in no way limited to) short films, feature lengths, screenwriting, cinematography & documentaries, are attempting to spark a revolution through media production, spearheading an approach to short films that is imaginative and cutting edge. The trailer for ‘Baddies’, a film slated to be released in 2016, begins immediately in a shroud of mystery, making viewers wonder who this ‘baddie’ is, what they want or desperately need, what fuels their ambitions and how far they are willing to go to attain their heart’s desires. Themes of temptation, power and corruption, survival, innocence and deception as well as sexuality and identity seem to be simultaneously in play through the trailer, which points to a mesmerising and EPIC short film, possibly one of Blame The Consumer’s best to date.
Based on the trailer, once this short film is ready, I guarantee it will NOT be one to be missed! Blame The Consumer have a string of successful short films so far and seem to be showing no signs of slowing down, most notable releases being RESPONDER (2014) , BLOWING ON EMBERS (2015) and CROOKED FRAME (2015). And, if the stunningly frightening trailer for upcoming film ‘Little Jessie’, available for viewing at http://blametheconsumer.com/projects/littlejessie.html, and the warning message at the end of the ‘Baddies’ trailer about a cunning, manipulative and all-powerful ‘bad bitch’ being cloaked in sheep’s clothing are anything to go by; Blame The Consumer are people to firmly keep on your radar if you haven’t heard of them already.
