When an actor’s play is cancelled, he realizes his life lacks focus and hires an actual director to help guide him through his day-to-day existence. Hence the premise and title of a new short film, LIFE’S A SHOW.

Filmed during the height of the 2020 lock-down, writer, producer and director, Harvey Puttock, smartly used remote conferencing technology to film a good chunk of this short and limited the number of cast and crew on-set. In recognition of his creative achievement, Harvey scored quite a few accolades and awards, including:

Best Quarantine Short winner at Accord Cine Fest (July 2021)

Audience Award at Monthly Indie Shorts (July 2021)

Best Direction & Best Editing Nominee at Indie Shorts Mag Festival (July 2021)

Best Director & Best Humour Winner, and Best Writing, Best Short, Best Original Idea & Best Actor Nominee at Indie Film Awards (September 2021)

Critics' Choice Award at DMOFF (December 2021)
