One of the film genres that is overlooked the most is short films. They tend to be treated as the underdog when in actuality some of the best films are short films. We do think those people who create short films deserve proper recognition. They have a tough job because they are trying to tell a story with a shorter run time than a feature-length film and it has to be captivating enough to grab and keep the attention of the audience. We think Broken Gargoyles the short film directed by Freddy Carter (Yes, S&B’s Freddy Carter) will be able to accomplish this.
The First World War is over. Britain claims a victory, but for the casualties of war, the fight for a normal life is far from over. An unhappy reunion will force two lost souls to come to terms with the damage they’ve done to each other.
Broken Gargoyles is a film that has been a long time in the making for Carter and Fred Fergus who wrote the script. The film which is being produced by Joey Dawson via his company Reid Productions has an interesting premise and sounds like an important story. We already Carter is a talented actor so we can’t wait to see what he has done with this story. He was interviewed in 2021 and when asked what interested him about the story this is what he said:
“I think the thing that first grabbed me about Fred’s script is that it’s an antiwar film from a perspective that I’ve never seen before. It’s a fresh and new perspective. You know our lead characters are a woman of mixed heritage who’s a performer and her position in society is slightly unknown and unsure. And then a casualty of war who’s sort of become a social pariah and lost everything. You know these are perspectives we don’t normally see in period dramas.”
Carter took to his Instagram to announce that Broken Gargoyles is finished and is now ready to be submitted to film festivals. His post also included the poster done by Luca Pusceddu.
As of right now, we don’t know when Broken Gargoyles will be released but we do have the official trailer now.
