The Confession

As the end of the world approaches, a man attempts to receive forgiveness by an old friend.

This was done for a contest at SimplyScripts. (

The only location is an airport, but that's a location which many will likely find difficult if not impossible to normally shoot in. Personally, if I were to produce this, I'd probably recommend using some other location as an airport and maybe only shooting parts in an actual airport and the rest elesewhere.

The prompt for the contest was to make it an Action short, which I normally don't. So what I did was add a fight scene with several guards toward the end. It's mostly a fist fight and it includes a taser. No CG required, but it's still a fight scene.

Those two factors made me not really push this, knowing a producer would have to be really dedicated to see past them. However, I still decided to put it out here because - heck, why not?

I personally am always fascinated with airports, but if the prompt for the contest wouldn't have been "Action, in an airport during the apocalypse" I probably wouldn't have written a story entirely set in one. So in that sense it's kind of cool to have it.
