Kickoff is a short film written by me and directed by Zoran Trajkovic. Based on my short story of the same name, the film explores the emotions and sensations taking hold as a protest threatens to turn ugly. The lead is played by actor Steven Waddington (Sleepy Hollow, Last of the Mohicans, The Sweeney). It won the 2013 UK Film Festival’s Best British Short award, made the 2013 London Sundance Short Film Competition’s Top 5, and has screened at numerous film festivals. Watch it here:
