Afternoon Delights by Contented Brothers
Contented Brothers has released a five minute short film titled ‘Afternoon Delights’, to demonstrate what’s possible when agencies ‘relieve themselves from archaic agency process and bureaucracy’.
The five minute film, created in less than four weeks from script ideation to screening, and on a near-zero budget, was directed by award-winning documentary maker, director and exec producer at Contented Brothers, Chris Smith – whose recent work includes the documentary feature New Town Utopia. Afternoon Delights is a dark comedy that is sometimes sad, sometimes funny, showing the journey of a practical joke gone wrong. Very wrong. It’s short, sharp and to the point.
The point of Afternoon Delights was to prove that smaller, nimble agencies and production houses can use their agility to their advantage by tearing down the bureaucracy and process that tends to come with the territory of larger organisations – and create high-quality work doing it.
Contented Brothers took the small budget they would spend on entering awards and instead put it into the film. It has already been recognised at the Atlanta Comedy Film Festival and was screened at St Albans Film Festival.
