I’m just after completing my leaving certificate examinations here in Ireland, and I have just directed my first low budget short film.

G’wan the Stephen!

It’s a comical tribute to Charlie Chaplin with an unusual horror plot line that shows a younger version of him, experiencing some very abnormal circumstances with a lot of laughs. Beginning with an early morning rising, we follow Charlie through out the day, as his mental health is
put into question by what appears to be a ‘stuffed toy’ uprising.

I would really appreciate a reply, with any constructive criticism so that I can improve upon my techniques and further my skills.
