Film (Theatrical) Details
2/14 – 2/14

We made Russian Roulette for around £50. The hardest part of the film was keeping the visuals fresh for such a static location. The film recently won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance London's online short's competition. The film can be viewed on my website (http://www.darrenjoe.com/#/russian-roulette)
