Watch Now: Sci-fi short ‘On Sunday’

by Phil Wheat

Writer/director David Lea first won acclaim in 2002 when Half Life, a short film he co-directed for Greenpeace, won First Prize and Special Jury Prize at the young Advertising Awards in Cannes. He went on to direct award winning music promos for artists such as The Offspring, Emiliana Torrini and was nominated for Best VFX at the MTV music video awards for his work on the Radiohead Promo ‘There, There’.

His last short film Storage (staring Tom Hughes – Cemetery Junction, About Time) premiered at the 66th Venice International Film Festival before screening at festivals around the world. And now he’s released his latest short, On Sunday – a film half a decade in the making – shot on location in Cornwall and painstakingly post produced in the weekends and evenings over the next 5 years…

A man and his dog make their routine walk to the isolated clifftops of Cornwall…but this time they realise they’re not so isolated after all. Who said nothing ever happens on Sunday?

Give On Sunday a watch and let us know what you think of this sci-fi short in the comments below!
