My first ever short film and haven't made any since (because of time and I'm lazy). A 4 minute limit short film created over two weeks in 2004 as the final project of the 'Film and Television 2' unit at The University of Western Sydney - Kingswood and Werrington campus. It's not that great but hope you at least enjoy it!
