Working On

July 2020
Well. Wow. So... that pandemic thing. Benthic Pictures' 2020 projects (short films 'Song' and 'Midnight Oil') are on hold for now, with revised production dates to be set once the landscape has clarified.

In the meantime, Lex will keep on spit-polishing the scripts, because you can never have too much spit nor polish in this world. Okay, maybe too much spit. Particularly if fewer than six feet away. But it's a metaphor, so relax.
