    The story of a broken man.
    This is my entry for the croydon film festival 48 hour challenge, it was shown in full at the award night and we won the runner up prize.
    We were given the brief on Friday at 6pm and gave in the finished film 2 days later on Sunday at 6pm.
    The brief stated that our genre must be 'Drama' and the two objects that must be in the film somewhere were 'A multi-pack of Walkers crisps' and '28 helium balloons'.
    In that time I wrote the story, gathered actors and crew, found props, found a location, filmed, edited, and organised music to be written.
    This film could not have gone so well if not for Peter Burgess (the man in the film), he helped me with the story, drove me and the crew around, blew up balloons, acted, co-edited and drove me to the submission location with 5 minutes to spare.
