COUNTDOWN is a short film anthology series. In the opening moments of each episode, a line of text prophesies a mundane moment destined to occur in the protagonist’s imminent future. As an onscreen countdown clock ticks away in real time to that fated instant, we slowly discover its true, hidden significance. Comedies, thrillers, slice-of-life moments, character dramas, horrors—all genres are fair game.
The series was created to offer flexibility in collaboration and creative exercise. Concepts are constructed with the interests of collaborators in mind. The real-time nature of the concept mandates low-cost concepts and one day only for principal photography.
Created by Nathan Breton and Joe Killeen.
