Nightwalking, short film from Daniel Cormack

A black comedy, directed by Daniel Cormack, starring Raquel Cassidy (Teachers/ Lead Balloon) and Lloyd Woolf (Cowards), in which a woman who has taken the short cut home after night out becomes fearful that she's being followed. When she finally plucks up the courage to turns around she sees ... nothing! Except a mobile phone on the floor, ringing 'Mum'. Could it all have been in her imagination? And what are her would-be attacker's true intentions?Short facts:- When Nightwalking won the Best Merton Filmmaker Award at the Wimbledon ShortsFilm Festival, neither the director, Daniel Cormack, nor the screenwriter, Ben Clover,were able to collect the award as Daniel was getting married on that day and Ben was hisBest Man!- Nightwalking became an Internet sensation with over 12,000 views and hundreds ofcomments on the Virgin Media Shorts website.- Nightwalking made the final 15 in the Virgin Media Shorts Competition from thousandsof entries, but was denied a chance to win the 30,000 prize on a technicality when theBBFC (British Board of Film Classification) classified the film as a 12a, thus making itineligible.- After an appeal, the BBFC upheld Nightwalking's 12a classification, claiming: "It is fair to say that the noted comedy does not come through particularly strongly, and consequently does little to lighten the overall tone of the work"!- Nightwalking was shot in only three hours, between nightfall and midnight on locationin Greenwich, south-east London, near where Daniel Cormack and Ben Clover grew up.- Nightwalking is based partially on real life events and was made by Daniel Cormack and Ben Clover, two filmmakers who have been friends since primary school.
