This specific short will be an adaptation of the one off comic by Ehud Lavski called "The Test". A Sci-fi, Drama, Mystery theme ties up this intriguing piece.

I am a student filmmaker planning on using this short to go towards progress in coursework for my Media Production course.

This particular short will be placed onto YouTube so there is potential for this short to reach a fair amount of people.

This particular short will be taking place in the South Yorkshire area due to travel issues especially with local lockdowns being in place.

For this short I am needing 6 male actors of different ages to play that of varying roles of cops and a mysterious individual.
