'A Friend'

Synopsis - Dave is currently struggling to cope both financially and emotionally with life. After reminiscing about his past, he decides to bring back his imaginary childhood friend, Jack. Jack helps take his mind off the problems he’s facing.

About me - My name is Matthew Smith, I'm a third-year student at Norwich University of the Arts, studying Film and Moving Image Production. I've had a lot of experience up to this point such as cinematography, sound, and editing. I now want to push myself and direct my third-year film, with the help of a very passionate production crew. As well as directing, I will be writing, co-producing and editing this film. The script has proved to be a challenging yet an inspiring experience for me.
