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.
