Private Project


When it falls off the back of a van, there are no guarantees. A local con-artist tries his luck with a clever scam.

Jack, a young, cocky, wheeler-dealer, has arranged to meet old 'friend' Deano in a deserted wasteland to conduct a deal for a brand new PS4. Deano, a hardened brickie, is keen to get the goods but is cautious about the young upstarts ways.

Eyeing the prize and sure of a great deal, money changes hands but as the old saying goes, if it seems to too good to be true, then it probably is.

Switch is a short, snappy, live-action crime comedy.
