어느 여인이 새로운 아파트에 이사를 오고 초자연적인 경험을 하기 시작한다. 그 끝엔 어떠한 진실이 그녀를 기다리고 있다.
A women moves to her new apartment and starts to experience paranormal activities but some truth is waiting at the end.
Born and raised in Nepal, Veemsen Lama is no ordinary umpteenth London-based filmmaker. From a very young age, Veemsen developed a passion for storytelling, and so at the dawn of his adult life, he promised himself to do all it would take to make his dreams come true. That notably meant enrolling in the British Armed Forces, which he served for several years. Once he had taken and passed all of the rough tests to become a Gurkha, Veemsen finally set foot in England.
Determined to tell the world the stories he had and would stumble upon, he first started learning about filmmaking through books and YouTube tutorials while still in the army. Sometime around 2012, there was a redundancy process and Veemsen's name was on the list. 'What next?' probably was the question that popped in at that time, and applying for university seemed to be the obvious answer...
In September 2013, Veemsen thus started studying Digital Film Production at Ravensbourne in London. Now a fresh graduate, the young filmmaker is working freelance, doing camera operator jobs, music videos, wedding videography and photography, and so on and so forth. When it comes to his films more specifically, Veemsen Lama is eager for stories about love and hope, which he wishes can inspire others whose life is being dark and cruel. He's therefore engaging with the drama, romance, but also horror and action genres a lot.
After the success of his graduation short film, MAYA, which was nominated and awarded at numerous festivals around the world (including Raindance; BKSTS, where it won "Student Best Film of the year 2015"; London Short Film Festival; Berlinale; Screentest Student Film Festival, where it was nominated for "Best Drama"; London Independent Film Festival, where it won "Best International Short Film"; One World Media Awards, where the film's been long-listed; Valletta Film Festival, where MAYA is up for the "Triton Award"; and most recently L.A. Cinefest), Veemsen Lama has recently been nominated for 'Best Director' at the 2016 Ouchy Film Awards, and he and his crew have just come back from Mustang (Nepal), where they shot the film director's upcoming short, Chyanti, for which the team is still looking for backers (see Indiegogo campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/chyanti--2#/).
Now at the head of his own independent film production company, namely Javiya Films, Veemsen is prepping for his debut feature, with his closest collaborator and producer, Tom Cullingham, at his side.
A few words from some of his collaborators...
"I've worked with Veemsen before on a few small projects but MAYA was the first project I've produced. He's so passionate about storytelling and is really ambitious and determined. It's easy to see that he has a clear vision when working with him and It's easy to trust him completely with whatever he wants to do." -Tom Cullingham, Producer
"Working with Veemsen was incredibly rewarding, he is such a passionate storyteller and filmmaker. (...) He really likes to get emotionally involved in the story and he is an incredibly visual director." -Arran Green, Director of Photography

Veemsen Lama is an award winning British/Nepalese filmmaker who currently resides in London. His journey to filmmaking is a unique one. After working in the British armed forces for sometime, he had a gut feeling that he should be telling stories, and followed it. This led him to Ravensbourne where he completed Bachelor's Degree in Digital Film Production with first grade.
While studying, he became fascinated by other sides of filmmaking, such as cinematography, which he has done for several short films, music videos and documentaries. He also realised that his passion as a director was to tell stories about love and hope, in order to inspire others in dark situations. However, because of his versatile nature and hunger to experiment and challenge himself, he also frequently engages with the horror, action, romance, and drama worlds.
Recently, he returned to Nepal to shoot his latest short film, MAYA, which is currently in festival run. In addition to that, he is prepping for his debut feature.
