Maya is a horror feature film about jinn possession shot on location in Pakistan in the Urdu/Hindi language. It follows the life of a young girl in her early twenties, Maya, and a traumatic event that happens in her childhood revolving around mythology about jinn (fire demons from Islamic scripture). The film follows her as an adult as she tries to piece together her childhood whilst surviving her present.

A beautifully shot film with some great performances from the cast of non-actors.

I oversaw sound post; editing dialogue and sound effects, creating backgrounds and sound design and final mixing in 5.1 surround. I bought Alasdair Jones on board to edit foley and sound effects.
