Left Alone is a coming of age web series that takes
place over six 20 minute episodes about a difficult relationship
between a mother and her son trying to survive in a societal
collapse. A fairytale-esque story about parental influence and
expectations set on you by people of authority
What are we making?
Left Alone is our final year project for Massey
University Creative Media production, we are producing the pilot
episode as a proof of concept to hopefully allow us to create the
rest of the series. We have just finished filming the pilot episode
and we are now moving into post-production.
The story follows Thomas a reserved 15-year-old boy
who has been sheltered from the outside world nearly his entire
life, all he knows about the world is what his mother has told him.
He has always wanted to know more about what has happened to the
world but his mother tells him stories of hideous monsters that
lurk in the forest. However one day he finds an elusive girl
stealing their food which causes Thomas to question everything his
Mother has told him. In turn making it harder for the mother to
control Thomas, drawing more attention towards them and making it
harder to survive, forcing the mother to make a difficult decision
between her own survival and her sons.
What is it about?
Left Alone is a gripping tale story of one boys
struggle to understand his place in this world and his attempts to
escape the different expectations set on him by different people of
authority. The story explores ideas about parental influence and
the idea, are you a product of your environment or is your 'self'
