Created for the BFI Thriller Short Film Competition. In December 2012, 3 winning scripts from the BFI MacGuffin Short Thriller Competition were posted online. Filmmakers under 25 nationwide were invited via IdeasTap to create a short film for exhibition at the BFI Futures Film Festival in February 2013.
Our creative team selected the short script "Just Talk To Me" by Elliott Weld and filming took place at Confetti in Antenna, Nottingham. With just 5 hours on location to get the film in the bag and less than 2 weeks for post-production, this is our submission.
Kevin and Mary are a normal couple. The reasons they married were good reasons, they remain good reasons. However, when one of them focuses on a negative trait and turns it into an obsession, the defining characteristic of the marriage, it can lead to a bad day, a very bad day.
