  MOVIE POSTER BEGINNING, Drama - 18min - United Kingdom
Appeared at WILDsound's September 2013 Film Festival

Directed by Pier Wilkie

Claire leaves her house in the middle of the night and finds herself at a late night cafe with twenty-something clubbers and a couple of chess players. Is she looking for something or trying to leave something behind

Genre: Narrative Drama or Fiction

Short Duration: 18:23 minutes

Director Statement:

I made this short film as an exercise for a longer project. The actors were key in the development of the script: the story was shaped as we workshopped the characters. I wrote the script based on those workshops. I am currently working on a feature film where the story (based in this instance on a detailed treatment) was similarly workshopped with actors before writing the script.
