Kate Herron - Smear
Smear is a short film that satirises the fear and embarassment some women experience around having their first smear test.
Inspired by Gremlins, Little Shop of Horrors and Tremors, it's a horror-comedy using tentacles to talk about a problem in a way probably you haven't seen before. It was shot by Nicola Daley ASC, score by Patrick Jonsson (composer on Oscar-winning White Helmets) and stars Sophia Di Martino (Flowers), Nick Mohammed (Mr Swallow), Rose Johnson (Birthday Girls) and Izzy Laughland (Chubby Funny). It's produced by Douglas Cox with his production company Shadowhouse, their last short Dawn of the Deaf played at Sundance, Fantastic Fest, Fantasia and won Best Short at Sitges.
Nathaniel Martello-White - Cla'am
Hog is a man you'd cross the street to avoid. An eccentric, manic character, he stumbles around his South London neighborhood watching in disbelief as local joints are transformed - seemingly overnight - into hipster coffee bars and expensive estate agents. His best friend JJ has gone missing, and he's convinced there's a wider conspiracy at work.
But no-one listens to him - they're too busy knocking back overpriced lattes. His investigation begins to turn up terrifying evidence that perhaps he was right all along - and he might be next to disappear. But is it all in his head? "Cla'am" is the debut short from Nathaniel Martello-White, one of the UK's leading young playwrights and actors.
Anna Mantzaris - Enough
This film centers around impulses we all can feel but never act upon. Glimpses of emotional anarchy. In our society there is a lot of unwritten rules on how to act and behave. This film explores what would happen if our buried instincts come back to claim their place.
‘Enough’ is the second short film from the multi award winning director Anna Mantzaris.
Jim Cummings - The Robbery
Crystal robs a liquor store - it goes pretty ok.
