During filming, Steven's car which features in the film was involved in a collision a week after the scene with Frasier & Cecil was shot. The car was still required for filming later scenes in the film and a replacement was sought soon after the accident. Luckily, Steven managed to find the same car but in green to allow filming to continue. See more »

A quirky story about putting your eggs all in one basket!
5 April 2014 | by angiequidimSee all my reviews

This short film was created by the team who put together the short "The Greyness of Autumn". This time, writer Andy S. McEwan has taken the hot seat and directed this film. The story is set in Scotland where two men discover an old trunk in a storage locker. Upon realizing its contents, they ponder upon its real worth and what they would do with the money after they sell it. Their fellow co worker, played by Darren McColl, sees the find and already is trying to participate in reaping the rewards with the other two men. It was decided that the trunk would be locked up and addressed the following Monday. In reality, the two who discovered the locker are plotting ways to leave the third man out of it.

This delightful short is witty and its essence is very much full of the culture in the country it was filmed in. The performances from Steven Patrick John Gaffney and Darren McColl were excellent; commanding well written dialog. Steven played the role of Fraiser, whose level headed point of view always prevails. Tam is played by John Gaffney, who adds that comedic vibe to the mix. The third actor whose performance was brief but added to the chemistry of the piece was Darren McColl. Even though the situation is very simple and the unwise decisions may lead to an unfortunate ending, the chemistry of the actors milk this short piece and bring out a comedic wit that can only be achieved by veterans of this craft. Another victory from this film team.
