Relaxing or boring? Baa Baa Land is an eight-hour sheep epic video


This movie might just make you fall asleep.

An eight-hour, slow-motion film with no actors, dialogue or narrative - and branded the dullest movie ever made by one of its own producers - is looking for an audience that wants to count sheep. Or at least watch them. 

Baa Baa Land consists entirely of slow-motion shots of sheep in a field.

The film was shot in Essex, England, and was produced by the founders of a digital meditation app, Calm.

It's a film, with absolutely no dialogue, about sheep.

"We don't expect it to break box-office records but believe there is at least a niche audience for it", Michael Acton Smith, one of the film's executive producers and a co-founder of Calm said in a statement.

"We're in discussion about US and wider distribution and in talks with an American TV channel", he said.

Producer Peter Freedman, said in a statement that he believed it could be the dullest film ever, adding: "We hope that audiences will, too".

The film premieres in the UK in September. There's no word on a New Zealand release date.
