 Where do those single gloves come from?

Where do those single gloves come from?

In early 2017 we'll be shooting CLANKERMAN, a dark comedy short created in collaboration with actor and comedian Eli Silverman. You can see Eli in one of Ben's early shorts INSECTICIDE here and in the infamous OFFICE PARTY RESCUE here.  

CLANKERMAN is a mockumentary following Terry Lothian - played by Eli - who claims to work for the secretive government department in charge of 'urban ambience'; single gloves on railings, misspelt abusive graffiti, dubiously stained mattresses slumped against alleyway walls and so on. Over the course of a day, Terry performs his various duties while bemoaning the effects of austerity cutbacks on his working life. As his whining becomes less tolerable, his behaviour becomes more unhinged...

We'll be shooting in Palmer's Green having been awarded a commission by Talkies, a community cinema whose annual festival is held in that part of north London. The film will be premiered along with the four other commissioned projects at the HERE Film Festival on March 26th 2017. See you there!
