Director Biography - Elliott Steven Kilmartin Gormley

Hello I m Elliott Kilmartin Gormley, I am an aspiring filmmaker and I have autism.

Back in 2021 during lockdown, while I was in pre-production of now of my feature film "Harold De Headhunter". I thought of a short film to do at my house and share my experience of estranged relationships.

During my times while walking home from work, I thought of how I would write the characters and what the story would all be about.

Director Statement

I wanted to share a positive message about estranged and anger issues, to show people that estranged relationships can not last and what will happen if you let your anger issues go too far.
