Dirty Dave – Short Film – 1995

With Special thanks to Lisa for this one, we are able to bring you a few pics from a short film Lisa had a part in from 1995.

Story – This is a quirky little short film, about a shop assistant named Lucy (Lisa Chappell). The film swaps between scenes that are actually happening, and scenes that are playing out in Lucy’s head.

Lucy has something going with her boss in the supermarket, but he is nothing short of a sleeze. In reality, Lucy is a shy young girl, who doesn’t say much. But the scenes as they play out in her head, are quite different…lol.

What goes on in her head, directly relates to who is around, and things that happen, except for the fact that Lucy is a tough cowgirl.

Very tongue in cheek, and quirky, but quite funny.
