Three films in this week’s NSI Online Short Film Festival from directors Jessica Joy Wise, Leah Cameron and Kevin Walker.
Your Place or Mine
Your Place or Mine | Drama, 6:30, English, ON, 2012 | Director: Jessica Joy Wise
One night, Annie and Danny meet at a bar, feel a spark and decide to go home together – but whether they go to his place or hers determines the path their relationship takes: short-lived lust or lasting love?
Your Place or Mine is a short, sexy, nuanced piece about the power of first impressions and how easy it can be to miss out on someone when trying to follow our instincts and our hearts.
Back From the Bush
Back from the Bush | Comedy, 3:22, English, ON, 2013 | Director: Leah Cameron
A Canadian man comes home early from his camping trip to find his wife in bed with another hoser. Everybody apologizes.
