Wanstead film-maker turns lockdown productive

Jay Sutherland and Lucy Quinlan

Wanstead screenwriter and director Daniel Johnson has released a lockdown project – a short comedy about someone trying to make the most of the lockdown.

The film covers the story of a struggling novelist who decides to use the lockdown to write a novel. Things don’t go to plan and it’s his girlfriend who finds herself being the more creatively expressive.

“I wanted to make a fun short film which captures the frustrations of lockdowns but does it in an amusing way,” said Daniel.

The film was shot on a very low budget, without a crew. “This is my favourite way to make a film – to have an idea and run with it, not worrying about budgets and equipment but instead just creating in a freewheelin’ and fun way.”

The film features actors Jay Sutherland and Lucy Quinlan and has a cameo from Nicole Kelleher.
