“Filminute, the 1 minute film competition, pestered me for months to enter something. I asked Richard Parker, who wrote Sleep Tight , if he had any ideas for a 60 second movie. He sent me Estranged, which both Keith and I felt used the format very cleverly. Everybody I asked to be involved said yes. We shot it in a friend’s garage, one Saturday. It’s a single take. There were nine attempts and we used the ninth. It includes our first digital effect. The practical blood splat on the garage door didn’t work. Joe Brett spent a day recreating it on his computer.  After the constant pleading from Filminute, I assumed we were a shoo-in for the first prize. Well, how wrong I was. We came nowhere. But the film was our first to turn up on YouTube. You can see it here: link. And, yes, that is former Hammer star Shane Briant who’s posted a kind comment.”
