WATCH: SA filmmakers shot an entire film from home during lockdown

It’s called "Cabin Fever" and it was completed within 34 days using only cellphones and laptops

Inspired by South Africa’s tough lockdown, Cabin Fever tells the story of a woman, locked down alone in Cape Town and struggling to keep her family around the world together. When she learns that her husband’s first wife is dying of Covid-19, everything changes.

SHOT DURING LOCKDOWN
This is part of the Lockdown Movie Project, which film-maker Tim Greene started when he put out a call on social media for actors to join him in shooting a feature film remotely. According to Green, it is possibly the world’s first feature film to be created under lockdown conditions. 

Cabin Fever had no crew and used no specialist movie equipment. The script was written in sections, tailored to the locations and props available to the actors. The film was completed within 34 days using cellphones and laptops.
