The 20 Minute Film Pitch

30 Minute short

Gary Smith, a young aspiring movie maker, pitches his film script to a silent, shadowy figure sat behind a large board-room table in an otherwise empty room.

He is being timed.

Gary has 20 minutes to tell and sell his story.

Unfortunately real life and fantasy soon become entwined when bubbling emotions from Gary’s life spill into the narrative of his film idea, and he gets lost in the endless grey corridors of faction.

Will he be able to re-find his narrative, before he is beaten by the sands of time?

A 30 minute film starring Rory Nolan
Written by Geoff Thompson

    Very moving story. Feels like it’s written from pure love itself.

    Great truth from Rory Nolan, the thing all actors strive for.

    This is art imitating life in the best way possible.
