SAM DID IT

Sam is about to meet his celebrity idol... the only problem is, Sam works in a morgue... and his idol is dead.

 

Sam loves his job working in a morgue, almost as much as he loves his celebrity idol, Alfred Molina. So, when Alfred Molina arrives on Sam’s cold hard slab (a potential victim of some nefarious seals), Sam’s world is thrown into chaos and despair... a dark comedy that explores how a fan’s world can be impacted by the loss of their favorite idol.

 

'SAM DID IT' is Dominic's directorial debut, and will be premiering online on Monday December 3rd via SHORT OF THE WEEK.
