LIGHT was filmed on an extremely small budget, which meant a lot of limitations: Two main actors only, a couple of day players, a single indoor shooting location, and less than ten days to get it all done.

The idea was to create a planet with a misty atmosphere, which allowed us to shoot in a small space without the characters having to be confined to a room in-story - and with the added bonus that it would be a naturally claustrophobic setting. A few bags of sand, some prop rocks, a smoke machine and some lights were all we had to create a planet. 

In terms of inspiration, we looked to ALIEN and ALIENS for the look and tone, as nearly all sci-fi horror films do. We also tried to do for light what A QUIET PLACE did for sound – i.e. put our characters into a dark environment with a creature that attacks sources of light, and then have the characters need to use lights to escape.
LIGHT was made almost entirely in-house at OUTATIME FILMS - everything from the costumes to the props; from the editing to the sound design/mixing; from the colour grading to the visual effects.
