The Deal

5 Players, 2 Peelers, a bag, drop of blood, and a pile of puke in the Belfast Docks set the scene for this 10minute black comedy about a heist that doesn’t quite go to plan.

Shot as part of The Actors Centre and BBC Talent Boost initiative.

Screened at the Belfast and LA Femme Film Festivals 2011. Selected for Dublin’s Underground Film Festival September 2012
