Lion & Lion’s Film & Content Production Studio launches debut film titled “Love On The Line”
Lion & Lion’s Film & Content Production Studio has released its debut short film “Love On The Line”, just three months shy of establishing their own in-house team.
“Love on the Line” tells the story of an elderly man who, dressed in his best, makes a daily trip to his neighbourhood telephone booth to make a phone call at 6 o’clock sharp. As the story unfolds, audiences are drawn into a tale that explores themes of love, memories, commitment and human connection. The film’s powerful storytelling is enhanced against a backdrop of nostalgic settings and small town charm, shot on location in Seremban.
Johnson Ling, Head of Production at Lion & Lion and Director of the film, said: “Love transcends time and space – even in the absence of our loved ones, their memories continue to inspire us to live and love more deeply.”
“We wanted to convey the message that the little things in life can make a big difference. Our story aims to remind viewers that every moment counts, and that love, no matter how fleeting, can have a profound impact on our lives. Through our film, we hope to inspire others to cherish the small moments in life and to never take them for granted.”
Cheelip Ong, Regional Chief Creative Officer at Lion & Lion, said: “With the launch of our Film & Content Production team to create greater impact for our clients, producing and making cinematic films and shorts that can demonstrate the capabilities of our directors and the storytelling abilities of our creatives comes naturally. It allows our talents to broaden their canvas for creativity, telling stories that delight and that touches hearts through the film format.”
