Director/writer: Stuart Wahlin
Featuring: North Roberts and Anita Boska
A six minute film made in a 60 hour film competition about a drinker with a writing problem.
A one-character show with little dialogue, but a compelling voice over script making it seem almost Sin City-esk.
I actually quite enjoyed it. Showing the struggles of somebody who finds a 9-5 job utter hell. The only thing this character enjoys is writing, despite never finishing his projects or having anything published.
With a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other, the writer finds himself to be the biggest hindrance. Even more so than the power cuts and constant distractions.
I’ve found that many of these amateur/self funded films with limited dialogue reflects badly on the actors who tend to over-act to fill in the silence. I didn’t finds this was the case in Tissue though. The acting was subtle and believable.
A perfectly entertaining short film.
