Written by Fran Landsman, Tree was successful on the stage, and now Screenology are adapting it for the screen. This is a new endeavour for the team at Screenology Studios - testing out their lean filmaking process with drama for the first time. Tree will be shot over the course of four days, with a private screening on the fifth day. Tree will be available to watch online in September 2018. More about the characters: Inspired by the Blue Whale challenge - teenager Joe has convinced himself he must complete his final challenge to prove his devotion to his girlfriend and the Blue Whale cause. He has been set a specific date - and has chosen to hang from a tree in a quiet park. Dave is on his way home, and has taken a short cut through the park. He's desperate to get home before his wife Shelley leaves him for her hunky new life coach. Shelley really needs Dave to get home in time for their counselling session - when he doesn't show up or answer his phone, she fears her marriage is lost - and heads to the park desperate to find him.
