Rain for Morgan - short film

Set in drought-stricken, post WWII country Australia, ‘Rain for Morgan’ captures both the beauty and the eerie otherworldliness of love in a dying landscape. Forced from her home and trapped in the desolation of the outback, Morgan longs to return to the safety of her previous life. But unless she can wrest herself free from Johnny’s dark hold, his world will be hers forever.

Based upon the mythological themes of the Celtic legend ‘Johnny Croy and the Mermaid’, ‘Rain for Morgan’ was shot on location in Yabba North, Victoria, Australia, and combines stunning visuals with with timelapse and underwater photography.
