Life Lines (2014)

Life Lines

Made as part of Action On The Side August 2014

Homeless and wayward, Brel seeks structure. He joins an organisation that gives you a daily script to follow. The consistency of his new life turns to mundanity, saved only by working with the beguiling Mori – a woman with a past who wants to just stick to the script.

This empowering drama comes from 18-year-old writer/director Tunbi Oluyede, and was made within four weeks as part of Action On The Side ( ).

Life Lines Poster

The script was pitched and developed the weekend of 02/03 August 2014
The film was shot on 09/10 and 17 August 2014 in Morden, Holborn, and Walthamstow, London, UK.
The film was premiered on 24 August 2014 at the Action On The Side screening.

Oluyede was influenced by such films as ‘The Place Beyond The Pines’ and ‘No Country For Old Men’. The story comes from coping with a break-up, and seeks to represent the monotony of a humdrum life.


Life Lines made it into the top 10 of the Shooting People Film of the Month Competition, September 2014.

Life Lines is now on IMDb!
