He walks the streets every day to find his next meal, but he also seeks something else—angels. As They Continue to Fall tells the story of a man without a home who hunts divine beings in a city that has fallen into ruin. The dystopian society may have turned its back on him, but that doesn’t stop him from moving forward in his endless search.
First-time director Nikhil Bhagat will begin filming shortly a script written by Sinister‘s screenwriter C. Robert Cargill. Cargill was a long time contributor to Aintitcool.com before writing Sinister. Boasting a very strong crew, As They Continue to Fall is now seeking funding through a Kickstarter campaign.
Bhagat and Cargill met on the popular social media site Reddit.com last year after Bhagat contacted him. Cargill liked the short films that Bhagat had directed in the past, and agreed to meet with him. After a meeting, Cargill wrote the the script to As They Continue to Fall.
