"When James suddenly collapses to the sight of an old toothbrush he soon learns that holding on to the past can be heart breaking."
'Toothbrush' was a film I wrote in 2010 for a screen writing assessment in my first year at UCA. It was written after a
breakup and fictionalises the idea of 'heartbreak' sneaking up on you when you least expect it.
We shot the film over two days in August 2010 however it took almost another year to complete due to a lengthy sound edit and other projects.
