Waiting 2006

I received a recommendation email from Youtube and was suddenly reminded of a short film i did sometime last June.

The director has uploaded a trailer video of the film that never quite made it anywhere. Presumbly coz of the fucked up DIY styling and unconvincing makeup!


(talcum powder in hair, seaweed in teeth and random lines on forehead)

I play an old woman who pines for her lover over a course of 70 years.

He was to marry a rich girl but he was in love with me and on the night he broke their arranged marriage, they both got mugged and murdered.
I didn’t get news of that so i always thought he eloped with the girl.
In the end, she appeared to me and persuaded me to give up waiting.
Then my character dies, and realises that all along, he’s been with her, waiting for her to join him.

Filming was done in a day, in a rundown room at MayFair motel (Monopoly MayFair?).

I’m not sure if it was the location, or the lighting then, but the scene where i had to cry and be agitated while telling my story, there was a gush of sadness that overwhelmed me, (even now as i type).
It felt like there was something lingering with regrets…..

See the trailer here.
