TUBE TUBE 2 – Leave To Remain – Tube Short Film Series

Leave To Remain is the second episode of the TUBE TUBE series. It is probably my favourite episode of the first five to have been released so far, and in some ways the most brutal. Timothy Knightley plays Lloyd an Aussie lothario who gets some great news and totally humiliates (intentionally or not) Mat Pinckney’s character (couldn’t catch a name I was informed by Mat via twitter that his character’s name was Paul) all in less than 2 minutes. Both are vying for Ruthie (played brilliantly by Natalie Hughes), but we already know what’s going to happen in the end.

Of course you’ll have to watch to find out for sure. Speaking of which, TUBE TUBE is a whole series of short films which you can watch on their YouTube channel. You can also follow them on Twitter @tubetubelondon and like their Facebook page. You can of course also stay up-to-date by subscribing to my blog through the various subscribe option on the right.

So what do you think of episode two? Better or worse than the first? Why?

New Short Film Series Set On The Tube – TUBE TUBE 1 – Bonsai

TUBE TUBE is a brand new short film series set entirely on the tube. In episode 1 Rob gives his theories about the types of women he meets from online dating in London. Overall, great acting and writing. You feel as though this is a conversation (well more monologue) that you could witness late at night on the tube. Although that being said, the main character is a bit more coherent than most after a few drinks.

I found the series via this post in reddit. Apparently the film is based off a true story in director Ben A Williams’ real life. Also, in case you’re wondering the crew did get rare special permission to film on the tube. This episode was also a finalist in Sundance London’s Short Film Competition.

You can stay up-to-date on the whole series by ‘liking’ TUBE TUBE on Facebook, following @tubetubelondon on twitter, and most importantly subscribing to their Youtube channel. I’m also going to be posting each one here so subscribe to my blog via the subscribe option on the right to stay up-to-date.
