The Story

A man is slowly driven insane by the incessant cries of the baby next door.

THE BABY NEXT DOOR is an intense, heinous psychological thriller in which an up-and-coming young professional is kept awake every night by the cries of the baby next door. The lack of sleep, his rising substance abuse, and the stress of this job send him spiralling into a mental breakdown, which ultimately reveals an unspeakable act in his past. Consumed with guilt, he is forced to face the unfathomable consequences of his actions.

The Campaign

This film is a totally independent production and has been self-financed up to this point. But making a short film of this scope (with the level of execution that we know we can achieve) is an expensive endeavour. Your contribution will go directly to the production and the post-production of this ambitious short.

The original IndieGoGo campaign has already finished. We are now running a post-production funds campaign to complete the project. You can visit the page for more information by clicking the button below.

We want to give a very warm thanks to all the people who have contributed to the campaign. You hold a very special place in our hearts.
