For Want Of A Nail Short Film – Audience Feedback from LA Female Film Festival in April 2019

FOR WANT OF A NAIL, 18min., UK, Drama/Comedy

Directed by Lucy Joan Barnes

Inspired by writer Nick’s own struggles with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Intrusive Thoughts, but reconfigured and extrapolated to a more severe ‘worst case scenario’ “For Want of a Nail??” follows Marty, who attempts to live out a ‘perfect day’. As the story unfolds it becomes apparent that his range of intricate routines have been compounded by a succession of deaths in the family. Now, with only his twin sister left, Marty has found himself seeking to finally, once and for all, dispel the urges and paranoia that drive the compulsions which are seriously affecting his life – and, in his mind, stop his sister from dying

Female Festival Testimonial – March 29 2019

Absolutely outstanding notes and I can’t thank you enough. Obviously Charlie Kaufman are difficult waters to sail but I am determined to rock on. The first thing I throw out of the boat is He Who Appears To Be He. But a girl can dream can’t she? Count on one thing you will be receiving my rewrite with a boatload of gratitude.

Female Festival Testimonial – March 22 2019

I want to thank you immensely for the feedback! I’m truly grateful. Feedback and reviews are the main reasons I submit to competitions such as this one. I’m most pleased with this one in particular because the reviewer took the time to make suggestions as to how I could make the script better, most notably with some of my character relationships.
– Chastity Lively (Screenplay, Happy Holidays)

Female Festival Testimonial – March 19 2019

I was delighted they could identify with the characters, Mother Daughter relationships are universal, and although set in Ireland it was great to see the audience could empathize with the situation and enjoy the comedy as well as the drama.
