Job Type: Permanent

A short film exploring the role of Love, presented as a physical character, in different people’s lives. Love struggles to help Scarlett Raine, a heartbroken woman who refuses to accept that she still loves or ever did love her previous boyfriend. Her story is juxtaposed with the stories of Gabriella and Gregory Verde, a couple who have been happily married for 31 years; and Yorick and Rosy Blau, a granddad and granddaughter who are best friends. Love has lost faith in himself even to the point of trying to find a replacement to fulfil his job role.

'Job Type: Permanent' was conjured up when I asked myself - what would it be like if Love was an everyday guy? It's a colourful and curious film which I hope people will enjoy with a colourful curiosity.
