My Tumour & I

Neil is sick. Or is he? It's cancer and it's terminal. But the doctors say he's 100%. When a friendly nurse suggests that maybe his problems are more psychological than physical, Neil retreats into self-obsession, a feverish mind-scape of paranoid delirium in which his home is invaded and his health consumed by a living, breathing, beer-swilling tumour...


A short extract from my graduation film made in 2005. The film was shot entirely in a grain barn in East Anglia. It stars the wonderful Bradley Lavelle as The Tumour who sadly passed away in 2007. This ones' for you Brad.
