Director Statement

I worked with Ethan (lead) on a TV Pilot and loved his natural delivery. For another project he suggested a boys own story, a true story much like my short A Chequer Board of Nights, but WWI. It featured in the 1950's comic Wizard, but with a low budget I knew I couldn't do it justice, he got me thinking though, and with a little research we found an anonymous letter and Tomorrow was born. I hope this emotive short beautifully scored by Graeme Osborne will give all cause to think before reaching for a weapon.
