Locke Tom Hardy
Of all the genres, the single location film is perhaps one of the hardest to get right. For one, you need a hell of an actor (or actors) to hold the attention for even the briefest of running times. You also need a story that coherently keeps the actors in place, with enough of a hook to keep you involved. And you need to keep things visually interesting enough to stop it being too static without being showy. It’s a big ask, Hitchcock was the master of the style, and there are a select few other examples, but most turn out poorly.

You may not have heard of Luke Snellin, and that would make him one of the most talented and promising young filmmakers that you haven’t heard of. Don’t believe us? Watch some of his films, including "Disco" and "Mixtape" below, and you may just change your mind. It’s with a great deal of excitement then that we’re able to report on the news, via press release, that the BAFTA-nominated writer/director will soon be directing his debut feature. We may have another Rupert Wyatt/Joe Cornish/Richard Ayoade/[insert name of talented, young British director here] on our hands.
