PLOT: When a beautiful woman enters the cafe, two men decide to battle it out on a chessboard to decide who gets to approach her. The Knight Out is Sri Lanka's first musically driven action short-film.
Behind The Story
In April 2019, we wanted to go back to our roots and do another action sequence. The initial concept was to choreograph the action to a music track. Thereafter, the ideas kept piling up until this became the biggest project (scope-wise) that we have ever executed.
Pre-production on The Knight Out took four months and we shot the entire thing over a three night period with an expanded team.
Since this is unlike any other project that we've done before, we've decided to coin the term "action-musical" in order to categorize this genre.
The Knight Out is currently in the post-production stage.
