Director Statement

I thought Louise's script had potential the moment I read it. It is a worrying part of modern life that such things can occur fairly regularly in our society and often go unnoticed by the general public. I felt is was a harrowing story that really needed be told.

My aim with the cast was to keep the performances as 'real' as possible and the tension high. I think they achieved this and more with some really fantastic acting from a great up-and-coming ensemble.

The whole film was shot in just four days in and around Putney and Islington on a very limited budget and it's testament to the professional approach of the crew as to how high the final production values look.

I hope you enjoy it.
