Weekly Geeky Question #52: Christmas Television Specials

Here we are, on the last Weekly Geeky Question of 2018, and the last one for the foreseeable future. And for this final week, my friend Rod (who has been asking me geeky questions as blog prompts all year long), has gone Christmas-themed. And it actually comes in two parts this time.

Presenting: Call Me

It’s taken a long time, but we’re finally finished with Call Me, a short film shot in June 2016 which I wrote and directed.  It’s hard to say much about it without giving away its premise, except to say that the story is about a woman named Reg who comes to her office to find a note from a colleague asking her to call him.  When she does, he expresses complete surprise about the note.  As the conversation continues, the two discover something much stranger is actually happening.
