Situation Vacant on IMDB
In the interview room no-one can hear you scream.
Situation Vacant tells the tale of young job seeker, Connie Ray, as she undergoes the most intense & uncomfortable interview of her life.
Situation Vacant (3D) is a taut, mysterious short film from Enhanced Dimensions produced as part of the 2013 leg of The 48 Hour Film Project. Written, filmed and edited over the weekend of 23rd to 25th August 2013 in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.
The film stars the brilliant young actress Amanda Marment as Connie Ray and the equally brilliant (and nearly as youthful) Nick Cheales as the mysterious Nick Black. Rebecca Ritchie-Smith plays Nick’s sidekick and the cast is completed with the inclusion of James J Robson as the third mysterious member of the “Black” group.
The film was again shot on a Sony NX-3D1 Stereoscopic single body 3D camera in order to capture good quality 3D footage at the speed required to deliver within the demands of a 48 Hour Film Project schedule.
