In September 2011 14c’s Dougie started working on a short film script with London based comidian Josie Long. By May 2012 the script, casting, rehearsals and shoot were complete. With the tiniest of budgets we created an 18 min short that the entire cast and crew were proud of. And we had so much fun it inspired us to start working on another collaboration almost instantly.
Set in Glasgow, Let’s Go Swimming is a sad comedy with some little bits of stand up voiceover in it, about a woman trying to run away and start a new life for herself, with no success. We were chuffed to work with a brilliant cast and crew, and managed to blag good equipment to make it. Musicians that we love like Stuart Murdoch and Aidan Moffat did cameos for us and a cafe gave us free catering for the shoot, too.
The film is now being submitted to film festivals around the world which prevents us from posting it online, but below you can watch a short excerpt have a look at production photos or support out next film through our crowd funding page.
