Filming wrapped last week on my new short film for LAMDA, Twenty-Four Hours. Set in the London Blitz of 1940, it showcases FdA course students graduating in summer 2019.
RAF wireless operator George and his superior officer, Laurence, are on 24-hour leave. It's the day of George's wedding to aspiring singer, Violet, with Laurence as last minute Best Man. But Violet's bridesmaid and cabaret colleague, Mariette, has another appointment that day that brings her into contact with Laurence's sometime girlfriend, the upper-class Dinah; and when Dinah reveals controversial leanings at the wedding reception, Violet breaches convention to stand up for her beliefs...
When these twenty-four hours may be your last, who are your allies…?
Directed by A.J. Quinn, with music by Simon Slater, Twenty-Four Hours will première at Curzon Soho, Spring 2019, and will then be available on LAMDA's YouTube channel.
