Getting On (films I loved)


This is a genius short by the Scottish filmmaker Ewan Stewart We were shown this film in class and I immediately fell in love with it. It is completely genius within, what would appear to be, a mundane subject. Brilliantly scripted and cleverly filmed.

It won awards everywhere it showed and quite rightly so.

BAFTA Scotland Winner – Best Short Film 2014

Unfortunately I cannot find the whole film online but did find a directors cut on Vimeo which will give you a flavour of this awesome film.
