Kosmos is a British science fiction psychological thriller film, released in 2016, written and directed by British independent filmmaker Simon Horrocks. Initially created as a 5-part web series, Horrocks subsequently edited the parts into one full-length movie and distributed the film on YouTube.
Human genetics research scientist, Philip Huyt, fights to keep his wife's life support switched on when doctors say she will never again regain consciousness. But health insurance rep Louis Lewis discovers a puzzling enigma surrounding Amy’s condition - no one can remember how she came to be in a coma, yet everyone who knows her seems to have been expecting the illness. Working with Louis, Philip attempts to stimulate Amy’s “psi-complexes”, activity of the mind which requires new technology to detect. Meanwhile, they must keep at bay forces attempting to end Amy’s life.
After crowdfunding £31,826 production costs using Kickstarter at the end of 2014, production was scheduled to begin in February next year. Most cast, crew and equipment were quickly put in place. However, with the intervening Christmas period slowing down preparations, combined with the cost of filming in London, no locations had been confirmed with only one week to go before shooting. The filming was to be split mostly between a hotel and a hospital, but with up to £3000 per day being quoted for a hospital set, Horrocks decided to look at alternative ideas. A friend was recruited to look into building the hospital as a self-contained set, but told Horrocks he couldn't afford that either. Eventually, the hospital was created from different locations, with the room containing Philip's wife hastily constructed in a friend's tiny artist's studio in Southwark, while filming had already begun in Croydon College.
