A man in the midst of a personal crisis seeks solitude in a park, when a passing stranger takes an unwelcome interest in him. At first the stranger is a nuisance but soon has something surprising to offer the man in his time of need.
'8 Ball' is a zero-budget short film that was shot entirely in one afternoon, on and around a park bench, on the Crabtree plantation in Basingstoke, Hampshire. It stars Andrew Coppin (2 AM, Addict), who we first worked with on our web series follow-up to award-winning short film 'Meat...', and also marked a screen debut for local talent Jason Gregory as the titular character.
The film was selected for a number of short film festivals, winning Best Screenplay at Sarnia Shorts 2012 and also screening ahead of a feature film at Bath Film Festival 2013. It was also selected for screening at FilmFstvl in Holland, the Seoul World Short Film Festival in South Korea, the only UK-produced short film to screen at the UNCIPAR 2012 Film Festival in Argentina.
