HAMMERSMITH

A delusional filmmaker's ego creates catastrophe on the set of his action/adventure dream project, while the concerns of his desperate cast & crew constantly go ignored.

Country:  United States

Director: Kyle Leland

Writer:  Kyle Leland
Producers: Mohamed Radwan, Kyle Leland, Justin Flocco, Eric Miller
Cast: Nick Wilson, Kyle Leland, Ashley Clark, Hannah Kopen, Kyra Jones, Derrick Bettis, Colin Rice

Director bio:  His first film was a documentary about shrooms. The priest in charge of the film program at his Catholic high school in downtown Chicago was not amused. His first project in film school was an adventure story about masterbation. The conservative Republican professor was slightly amused; it got a B-. After many short films and 10 years working as a PA on major studio productions, he now edits car dealership commercials to make money. He doesn't find this very amusing. Help Kyle. Program his films, and let's show some more conservative Catholics what else he's got hiding in that ungodly, degenerate, ginger mind of his.

HEART TO HEART

LIDDY (Fern Deacon) wakes up after heart surgery, woozy from anaesthetic and hallucinating. Her doctor is there to deliver devastating news to her and her overanxious mum HEN: her heart is in even worse condition than previously thought and, without a transplant, she could die any day. Upon hearing this, Liddy starts also hearing a voice, shouting that she's going to die a ‘pathetic virgin’: apparently this is her heart, LUMP (David Tennant), and he’s not about to sit around, waiting for her to die without ever even seeing a boob. He wants to get her laid. And nurse KIM is just the perfect candidate for Lump's plan. But first, Liddy will have to find the courage to at least say hello to her…
