PANJANDRUM is a short film that follows ALISTAIR, a sociopathic business man looking back at the horrible deeds he has committed in order to get his new executive position.

The project is a drama that will primarily focus on using a Film-Noir aesthetic.

The project is based off of a university brief but we will definitely be submitting it to an array of film festivals when completed.

We are looking for enthusiastic, flexible actors who are willing to work in Manchester and/or Oldham.

We are looking to start production on the 20th January and it will last (at the latest) until the 31st January.

Quiet, stern and sociopathic, ALISTAIR is our conflicted protagonist. Between 5”7 and 5”9, his pale, skinny figure and enigmatic presence give a slight unease to any scene he is in. The character eventually questions his own morality which will contrast his established uncompromising persona.

PADDY is first introduced as a timid, depressed, zombie-like figure that roams the office. This completely contrasts his past persona as a cocky, sleezy, jack-the-lad type.
