From the press release:
” Burn Time is the sixth and final short film in the web series Ao-terror-oa, an anthology of New Zealand themed horror movies, jointly funded by Youtube and New Zealand On Air and created by H2Ow Productions.
Set in 1985, Burn Time depicts a nightmarish vision of the worst sunburn imaginable, caused by a fictional rogue solar event.
While the events in the film are fictional, the filmmakers are deadly serious about warning people young and old about the dangers of forgetting or ignoring Sid’s original simple message:
Slip on a shirt, slop on some sunscreen, and slap on a hat.
The film can be seen at www.6weeksofhorror.com and www.youtube.com/h2ownz .
Released worldwide on YouTube on the 1st of December 2017, Burn Time stars New Zealand actress Brittany Clark (Mia Halston of Channel 9’s production Doctor, Doctor , screening in New Zealand via TVNZ)
Mia is set to return to screens on both sides of the ditch in season 3 of Doctor, Doctor , but first is excited for those with a stomach for horror to see her in Burn Time , where she underwent an extraordinary and terrifying transformation thanks to the incredible SFX makeup team of New Zealand company BodyFX.
How terrifying? Well let’s just say it could turn you off your morning cup of tea… forever. To find out more you’ll have to watch for yourself.”
