    A Simple Job - Backflop series - 48 hour Film Festival 2010


    door Backlashprods

    A Simple Job. Film created for the 48 hour film festival in Utrecht where we had to create an entire short from script to delivery in just a week-end.

    We are requested to create a "Buddy film" with the following components:
    - A goldfish
    - The line "the summer is over"
    - Character Kirsten Neumann, a haiku poet

    This film has slightly modified credits compared to the original entry at the festival. The rest remains as it was delivered.

    Plot: Two foreigners in need for money offer themselves to do a simple job for a local mobster. Their limitations on the English language will lead them clueless to the task they must perform.

    With: Dimitra Kassari, Fernando Borreda, and Reinie Chamonal
    Written and Directed by Juan Martínez Puig
