Screened at London Short Film Festival 2010 - UK Film Council's Digital Generation 'best of shorts' selection
One of ten shorts featured on the UK Film Council's 2010 'Life is Short' talent DVD.
“Big Tingz” follows the journey of two friends, Nathan and Mo, who are desperate to be part of the local crew and become “gangsters”. Seemingly throwing these two losers a bone, the local gangmaster, Sukhi, sets them a task to prove themselves – to enter the lion’s den of local recluse, Kevin, and steal his stash of weed.
Little do the boys know, Kevin is an Iraq war veteran with a fetish for all things shiny, and own a hellbound Rottweiler called Haydeez.
Things go from bad to worse as Nathan and Mo try to take what they can and escape with their lives and ‘reputation’ intact.
