Short Form

We began our production output with the short film The Things Unsaid in 2006, and have occasionally returned to short form over the years since. The opportunities for distributing short films have grown immensely since we started, and we continue to look at new ways of developing and producing short form entertainment for the international market.

The Final Punchline (2011)

The Final Punchline Film PosterReeling from the news of a serious illness, happy-go-lucky twenty-something Jason Rees decides to pursue his own course of treatment through stand-up comedy in this dark comedy-drama helmed by BAFTA Cymru-winning director DJ Evans. When Jason takes to the stage, it is clear that the stage doesn’t take to him, but a chance encounter at the hospital suggests that all is not as it seems.

The Things Unsaid (2006)

Director: Daniel Lyddon
Starring: James Morgan (BBC's The Indian Doctor), Lauren Phillips (S4C's Pobol Y Cwm)

The Things Unsaid PosterOur first ever short film was a mockumentary-style portrayal of the breakup of a young couple in a close-knit community in the South Wales valleys. Told in a series of interview segments, The Things Unsaid examined the importance of communication in relationships, and acknowledged that there are two sides to every story, and we usually only choose to accept one version of the truth. The film was screened at a premiere event in Cardiff Bay before it featured at the Short Film Corner of the 59th Festival de Cannes in 2006, with the help of funding from Wales Trade International.
