Closure was a departure for 416film but still an interesting film (check it out below).
It recently picked up several Merit Awards from the Southern Shorts Festival including, Actor – Neil Bennett, Actor, Patrick Williamson, Music, Screenwriting and Direction
Closure – Worldwide Film Racing 100 Hour contest – (2016)

Apparently Closure didn’t resonate with the judges at the 100 Hour Film Festival this year.
To be honest, while it is something that is not part of our regular film style I think overall the group was pretty pleased with the end result. Admittedly it’s a dark and moody little thing but we will send it out to a few film festivals and see if there is an audience for the film.
We survived again.
The assignment this time was:
Prop: A doll
Action – Shaking Hands.
A quartet of regulars: Neil Bennett, Eric Myles, Rob Paul and Patrick Williamson. A fifth player, musician Chris Pauley worked offsite composing pieces based on the script and then tailored to the rough and final cut of the film.
Eric and Rob wrote the script, something a little off the beaten path for the regular “comedies” 416film makes. Pat and Neil filled out the two acting roles while Rob and Eric worked behind the scenes.
The weather, although bleak and mildly snowy actually provided a great somber look to the film.
A little less hectic and rushed than some of our previous films we still were tweaking up towards the midnight deadline and uploaded in the last hour of the contest.
Wish us luck!
