DEADLINE
Christian Film Festival Award Winner

 

Title: DEADLINE

 

Creator: Valentine Burkhardt

 

Genre: Mini-Film

 

Length: 8:55

 

Description:  A typical office day: Day after day Christoph builds houses of cards up to a red line above his desk. Each time he reaches the line, the line is set a little higher. His Superior Bob postpones the deadline to the next day in the morning. A big shock for Christoph who wants to become worker of the month again. The day slips through his fingers so he works through the night until he breaks down.   Seconds before the deadline he manages to finish the last house of cards. He gets the promotion and a nailclipper. After he clipped his nails he's escorted to another room full of Triangle Rulers. He tries to pick one up... but it's futile.
