The Debt: A Short Film by James Cookson

The Debt: A Short Film by James Cookson

Last year Phoenix Films had the good fortune to work with our friend and award winning Director James Cookson. James approached us to help in bringing his vision to life and we tried our very best to help achieve that! With the edit locked off and the film ready to hit the web we couldn’t wait to share it on his behalf.

The Debt is an 8 min short drama about a meeting between two World War Two veterans. It is based on a script by both James and Richard Cookson. Without further ado, please enjoy the film!

It was a great day of filming and a nice short to do considering it takes place all in one location. It allowed us to concentrate on setting up the lighting exactly as we wanted and allowed the actors to almost treat it as a theatre piece, being able to run through long reams of dialogue without being cut off.

Be sure to check out James’ other work on his Vimeo Channel. In particular here’s another great piece that won the Silent House film competition:
