|Desert of Two Devils|
Desert of Two Devils is an upcoming short production by Wingless Films, and the twenty-fifth release. It was shot at Batten Bay on February 9, 2012. The film was conceived as a one-minute-film submission for Imperfect Cinema, to be shown on February 20.
The short stars Tom Menary as a man crawling through a desert in search of water, who faces a choice when confronted with two bottles filled, apparently, with water.

Production and releaseEdit
A response to a challenge for one minute films from Imperfect Cinema, Desert of Two Devils was conceived under the themes of "chance, chaos and randomness". The scenes were filmed at Batten Bay in Plymouth on February 9, 2012, and editing began on February 11.
The Wingless Films Ident appears at the end of the film, rather than as a pre-title as with previous films Exile and Intervention. Like Intervention, the ident is colour-graded to match the style of the film.

The original soundtrack was composed by Tom Menary. It introduces the Desert Theme, and reprises a twanging, delayed string element previously used in Chase the Dragon; in both cases, the instrument hints at the appearance of drugs or poison—in Chase the Dragon it represents the protagonist's pill addiction, while in Desert the instrument appears briefly when the two, possibly poisoned, water bottles are introduced.
