The short film thriller 3

A Coffee Films Production
A COFFEE FILMS production; "3", 3 mins, English, colour, DV, ©2004 Coffee Films.

Lee (David House) gets an unexpected visit from his best mate Jon (Mat Betteridge), who seems depressed at best. He's come fresh from a fight with girlfriend Sarah (Sarah Harvey-Smart), a fight where she told him something he really didn't want to know, something she probably wouldn't tell him again given the chance, and something that Lee definitely doesn't want to hear either.

"Excellent acting... Good music... This is a really interesting short film, and it does a good job at getting across a cohesive plot in such a short period of time... You will definitely be hit hard with the ending once it arrives. 8.8/10 Editor's Choice"
Microfilmmaker Magazine (click here for the full review)

"3 is an excellent example of what short films should be about... a simple yet strong story, told by a few talented actors with the minimum of fuss. 4/5" (click here for the full review)
