This is a gripping a short that presents a London Fire Brigade operator trying to save a young woman’s life. The genius of this short lies in the fact that we never see the house on fire.
The filmmaker relies on brilliant sound design and realistic dialogue to tell the story. The short is able to keep audiences engaged while keeping the film simple when it comes to production design. It gives viewers a realistic look into what it’s like to be an operator, and how it is somewhat a thankless job.
