A halfwit is invited to speak at the funeral of a girl he only knew through the internet.
Great work comes from passion. There are no small decisions in movie making. A technical job is creative if undertaken by a creative person. I want to work with the best possible professionals who believe in the project, who agree with my fundamental vision and want to bring the themes of the film to life creatively. As long as we are working 'on the same movie' I am happy to give lots of creative freedom to my collaborators. I believe a film should be made with a certain attitude that infuses everything - in this case a cheerful good-humoured, but at the same time dark, cynicism. This film, above all, should be funny, but there is substance to the humour and it should leave you thinking.
I am looking for a team of professionals who are passionate about what they do and keen to collaborate in creating a film that can stand shoulder to shoulder with the world's best short films. Every frame of this film needs to look and sound like a first class feature film. In all the different departments I am seeking people with a can-do attitude. Sometimes, if the budget isn't quite there to do things exactly the way we want them - there will be another way to do it that requires more imagination, creativity, elbow grease - or occasionally the right phone number.
