As an homage to the short film genre, Lion & Lion’s Film & Content Production Studio has released “Love on the Line”, a film that tells the story of an elderly man who, dressed in his best, makes a daily trip to his neighborhood telephone booth to make a phone call at 6 o’clock sharp.
As the story unfolds, audiences are drawn into a touching tale that explores themes of love, memories, commitment and human connection. The film’s storytelling is enhanced against a backdrop of nostalgic settings and small town charm, shot on location in Seremban.
“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,” said Johnson Ling, Head of Production at Lion & Lion and Director of “Love in the Line”
“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.”
“Love on the Line” was produced entirely in-house by Lion & Lion’s team of creatives, showcasing the agency’s expertise in end-to-end film production. The company additional does production for TVCs, branded entertainment, and digital-first content.
