Colin’s Song – Short Film
The first short film project of 2016 will be my directorial debut, the black comedy COLIN’S SONG.
I wrote COLIN’S SONG in a notebook back in 2006, when I was travelling around Australia. I’ve come back to it constantly over the years, and finally decided to knuckle down and film it this year. Fingers crossed they’ll be two or three more shorts arriving on a YouTube or Vimeo channel near you soon.
The story is simple: Colin has returned home after receiving the horrifying news that he has a terminal illness. He decides to inform his two sons (aged 15 and 10) of his situation via the medium of song. It doesn’t go well.
