A married couple try to face the tension in their relationship.

Production Notes:  In 2016, the media training programme I was involved with made this short film with the media school that I lead.  It was a pretty good process.  I wrote and directed the piece, and produced it with the help of 4 experienced staff and 8 students.  Each of us on staff took on a different category of responsibility (directing, camera, lights, sound, & production design) and worked with 1 or 2 students to put the movie together.  It’s short, it’s simple, but I think it came together well and communicates fairly successfully. 

In 2017, we did the same thing.  It’s a new script, but a similar type of scene, shot in the same location.  I don’t like it quite as much, even though I still think it works fairly well.  Maybe the “emotion” at the end is a bit over-the-top for the situation?  You decide.


Can a young man and woman overcome their awkwardness?
