You Only Die Forever (2014)

Written and Directed by Adam Harvey and Sasha Rinaldi

A secret agent must team up with a bitter rival and travel to the edge of their reality to fulfil his mission.

A child forced to play with the son of his mother’s new partner, escapes into a sci-fi spy fantasy and ends up making a new friend through imaginative play.

"Tropfest NZ finalist in 2014 and Winner of Best Visual Effects for our awesome visual effects artist Chris Williams. This was a very fun project, indulging in all our favourite spy and action movie tropes."
