Exclusive: The Joy Of Six Trailer
Prepare to be reprisalized

08 November 2012  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

It's not often we get the chance to dwell on short films in these parts, what with so many long ones to fixate on, so it's a rare joy to be able to debut this new trailer showing newbie filmmakers at work in the shorter form. As you know, we're also partial to the odd pun around here so The Joy Of Six ticks multiple boxes. Well, two boxes.

Click below to catch a glimpse of Romola Garai and Matthew Holness' directorial debuts, and Peter Mullan, Dame Judi Dench and Luke Treadaway on the other side of the camera.

Garai's 21-minute directorial debut Scrubber gives her the chance to step away from the trials and tribulations of Atonement, Glorious 39, King Lear and the like and let someone else (her Crimson Petal And The White co-star Amanda Hale) take the strain as a young mum with a strange obsession.

Holness's A Gun For George, meanwhile, should delight fans of his Marenghian alter egos. It sees Terry Finch, the creatively stymied author of The Reprisalizer and all-round loner, "looking for brutal revenge on the mean streets of East Kent".

There are also contributions from Douglas Hart (Long Distance Information), Will Jewell (Man In Fear), Dan Sully (The Ellington Kid) and Chris Foggin (Friend Request Pending) in this year's New British Cinema Quarterly short film initiative.

Aimed at "showcasing the best of British screen and directing talent", The Joy Of Six is distributed by Soda Pictures from Friday.
