Tom Hooper's first film
29 June 2012 | by hasnoformSee all my reviews

I recall seeing this very unique and clever little short quite some time ago on C4, a late-night slot I think. Certainly showed a great deal of promise which as we know materialised into the tremendous directorial talent of tom hooper. While not ground-breaking, it had quite a unique conclusion and displayed a great imagination. The acting was pretty good, perhaps a little shaky in places from the cast but generally impressive. Great camera-work too and lighting, really excellent use of sound and building of tension. Tom Hopper went on from this some time later to start directing on Byker Grove though probably not as a direct result of this short. Hooper doesn't seem to have taken his idea here and made it into a full-length feature at any future stage at least from the work of his which I've seen myself.
