Vanished - Don't follow the light is a unique piece of cinema. The full-length psychological thriller comprises three shorter films shot independently. 

The first chapter in the ground-breaking trilogy has at its core a paranormal mystery. Don’t Follow the Light is the prequel to Vanished and introduces the principal characters of both films including Gillian Gold who is central to the plots of both. Here is a smart spin on misadventure and mystery delivered amid a gripping quasi-factual mise en scène.   

The prequel - which now seeks funding - pre-empts the story of Gillian Gold, who followers of the plot will know as the ‘Banksy of Journalism’ and a tenacious investigative journalist. The clever Hitchcockian echoes of Don't Follow the Light are heard amid a succession of unsolved murders and the disappearance of Gold herself. The prequel creates an intelligent backstory that we very easily fall into.

Unique to this film is audience engagement. To throw up the mystery surrounding the disappearance of the maverick journalist seems to have caught the attention of the public and sparked imagination. You may have already noticed on social media a snowballing of interest in Gillian Gold’s story!
