Tick-tock, tick-tock.

by Andrew MacGregor


Short Films: “One Minute” - 2 mins 22s

A lot can happen in a minute… or not. It seems this couple disagree on a number of things, not least on the fundamentals of time. When irritable Scott (Scott Organ) requests “just one minute” to gather his thoughts, Ann (Ann Carr) proves a strict timekeeper.

Short and unsweet, Max Sherman’s two-hander will chime with anyone used to close-quarters squabbles. Ann and Scott’s bristling back-and-forth also invites audiences to pick a side - take a minute to decide.
