Killer Queen

A project by: Diya Malde



from 16 donors

Romance and murder don't go together, do they? Not until now

our film

Killer Queen is a six minute dramatic queer romance following two university students who are invited to a house party, in which the night reveals hidden queer romantic desires and a gruesome and bloody murder.

Meet the Crew

Hello, I'm Diya and I'm the writer and producer of Killer Queen! I cannot wait to see this project come to life. I am extremely excited to work with the rest of the crew and future cast to create an amazing film.

Below is the amazing crew who are helping me make this project:

  • Sam Holden - co-director and set designer
  • Sahil Hansraj - co-director
  • Lea Hiscox - cinematographer
  • Kia Afflick - gaffer
  • Alice Hanson - sound designer and editor

our story

We are a group of six second-year filmmakers who are passionate to make this film come to life within our creative screen practice module. Within this six minute film, we want to represent one of many perspectives within the LGBTQ+ community that various young people may relate to, and include a twist of drama amongst the romance.
