Staff pick film, Drawcard, directed by Antonio Oreña Barlin, competed in the Audience Awards 2016 Live Action Short Film Festival and screened at AudFest in April.
When a lighthearted office prank goes a little pear shaped, Ed is left to pick up the pieces and try to save not only his job but his dignity. Drawcard is a film about misdirected intentions, innocent mistakes and our inability to handle them as adults. We don’t get in trouble as often as we used to, but when it happens as a grown up that sick-in-the-guts feeling is all too familiar. Tina Fey says “There are no mistakes, just happy accidents”. For Ed this “happy accident” could cost him his job. Maybe.
