A skilled workman digs a perfect hole in a cracked earthen plain in an endless warehouse, a series of well-dressed people come and sit on comfortable couches offering contradictory opinions, and the job gradually unravels. If you work in the creative industries this process may seem familiar. In fact if you work in any industry you will find this story speaks to you.
A Hole is a surreal short film that explores the existential pain of working in a corporate hierarchy or perhaps just of working at all. It references and contemporises Greek myths, the theatre of the absurd, 60‘s radical cinema and 70‘s British sitcoms. Funny and tragic, or perhaps just tragic, it has a stellar cast and crew including actors Josh McKenzie, Byron Coll, Leisha Ward Knox, David Van Horn and Lucy Wignore, director of photography Dave Garbett, production designer Jon Lithgow, editor Alex O‘Shaughnessy and vfx artist Leon Woods.
It was written and directed by James Solomon and produced by Lissandra Leite through production company Flying Fish.
