jodie whittaker smokeWe’re always looking out for interesting shorts from UK directors and this new film from Gabriel Bisset-Smith is well worth a watch.

Smoke has a simple concept and it’s very well executed with the editing in particular making this love story in reverse something special. The script by Stuart Curran won a competition on, a crowd-sourcing platform for writers, and this film is the result.

Jodie Whittaker reunites Bisset-Smith (the short film Thrush is online here and takes a poignant look at modern relationships) and she and Claire Brown work very well on screen here as the couple begining and ending their relationship.

Here’s the short, we’re very interested to see what both writer and director have in store for us next.
