Mark Jenkinson | Director

My girlfriend and I wrote a short film. With no access to actors, we had to star in it and with no locations we shot in our home. Luckily for us some talented friends equipped with PPE came to help shoot it with us.

Set in the ghost town of lockdown London, this tale with a twist follows a day in the ‘life’ of a young couple who’s normal existence of spending their days with their feet up in the empty homes of unsuspecting others, is suddenly compromised by everyone being at home. Amid a haunting realisation that the ‘new normal’ is testing their relationship, their resolve to stay undetected - and seriously affecting their ability to keep up with the Kardashians; they feel increasingly invisible in a world where everyone has their feet up on their own sofas and it’s clear that there’s no room for two uninvited guests who are all dressed up with nowhere to go.
