High jinx at Christmas.

by Jason Stone


Short Films: “Going Down” - 10 mins 51s

This fun series of vignettes by writer/director Megan Maczko were designed to be shared over the Christmas period on social media. Each section of the film is devoted to one of the seven deadly sins and they offer a timely reminder of how easy it is to fall into the trap of behaving badly at the works Christmas party.

The collection is called 'Going Down' - a reflection of both their content and the fact that all the action is set in a lift. It includes a lot of familiar tropes but they're handled with a light touch and the action moves on at a highly agreeable pace.
