Set in the gritty streets of wartime 1940s London, Stanley, a homeless boy, is caught stealing food from a bombed house - at a time when looting could warrant the death penalty.
Still Falls the Rain is a graduation short film written, directed and produced by Miguel Santana, who also completed all 38 Visual Effects shots.
Shot on the Red Epic & Arri Ultraprime lenses. The musical score was recorded with a 40-piece orchestra, which is why Still Falls the Rain is best experienced in HD, full volume, and fullscreen!
