In 2014, Remain Humane started out as an experimental idea by Director Stuart Welbourn for a short film, which was meant to be an episode in a Web-Series entitled Fatal Fables.
A rough premise & character profiles were the only things written down; the dialogue was to be totally improvised.
Each actor was given a sealed envelope with their character description within, only moments before they first entered the story.
The four main actors rose to the challenge so brilliantly, it would have been impossible to edit down to a 15 minute short. However, there wasn't enough material for a full length feature & so 2 extra days of filming were planned.
With the exception of a couple of lines suggested by the Director to close up some loose ends, these shoots were improvised too.
Sadly, one of the main cast, Lily Chilvers was diagnosed with terminal cancer before a rough cut was completed.
In August 2017, the Director decided to shoot some additional scenes to allow for a more professional cut.
