Storyline

Set in real time, 'Ten Minutes' is a Black Comedy all about 'Andy' a high-flying magazine editor, and a ten-minute deadline. Andy, the son of magazine owner Brian Starks, has the task of looking after his fathers top magazine. His main problem is he's well out of his depth. Realising he only holds this position due to a) It is his father's business and b) he blackmailed his sister 'Jessica' into not taking the job as editor in chief. When we join Andy he's in jovial spirits as he is about to meet his first deadline with Ten Minutes spare. All he needs to do is press return on his computer keypad. As he does so a caption appears on the screen asking for the remaining nine images. This sends Andy into a mass panic as he looks franticly for a CD-rom. As he moves backwards to take a wider look, the wheel of his chair smashes the vital CD-Rom. Realising he has no pictures and a deadline of only ten-minutes, he now embarks on a frantic struggle for survival that ends in a downward spiral. ... Written by Anonymous

This film is really good, I like it, and you will too. Watch this film, just watched Shawshank the other day and this is better than that. Ten Minutes of perfection!!! I will admit that some of the acting is a little bit shaky at times, but this was down to the small budget and the nature of the film, which it was filmed in a very quick time frame to save money. It is one of the best short films I've seen and I watch a lot. I really felt the distress and emotion that the film was trying to portray, with the spiralling events that cause Andy to fall flat on his face. I understood the stress he was under, because one time I had to do an essay at school, but tried to do it all the day before. Hence, I failed.
