PLAYBACK – Short film

Synopsis: A hospitalised man agrees to be hypnotised so that his doctors can open up his past.

Genre: Psychological thriller

Production Year: 2017

Playback was an experimental performance piece that also has surreal elements.

Ben and I shot this as part of a series of work where we workshopped different characters.

The gestation process of this short was to pick a genre and subject matter and then write it within a weekend. We wanted to use it as an exercise to learn quickly. A (sort of) 48 hr personal film challenge.

The short film was part of a collection of 3. There were many ideas and learnings taken away from each production and it helped us grow each time.

Writer/Director: Adam Awni
