iNANiMATE OBjECTS

“A short grey comedy”

Synopsis

Inanimate Objects. Everyone has trouble with them. They grab, fall, pinch, trip, scratch, bruise…and kill. Bill Patterson’s a twenty-something country boy whose every move is challenged by them. Itching to find a life beyond his Grandfather’s chook farm, he makes a regular pilgrimage to the small town of Pooguna in search of work and women…(short women!) Skye is one such woman. At five-foot nothing, she has recently opened a curio shop in Pooguna. They might prove a good match…but the duties of an average day and the ‘malice of inanimate objects’ conspire to keep them apart. Meanwhile, Bill has secured a job that may lead to a future vocation. What he doesn’t know is that the job requires him to become an iNANiMATE OBjECT! 

Length

55 minutes
