A submission to a film challenge with the brief:
"Shoot a 1 minute film on one aspect of Christmas in your home or office. The purpose of setting this brief is to get you to work to a tight framework using the skills you have learned so far in shooting b-roll and people. There is no minimum or maximum shot count the only criteria is that you make it 60 seconds long."
Fortunately, this video has remained in the realm of fiction, but it depicts an aspect of modern life which haunts us all.
A householder wakes to a disturbance outside, and realises that there is an intruder. He wants to call the police, but the phone is downstairs. We follow the householder as he attempts to reach that phone and summon assistance. We reflect on our own preparations for such an eventuality and ponder on the solution to the problem presented by this film.
