Although things are now slowly returning to normal, it’s still important to remember to maintain social distancing at all times. Which means you need to wear a mask and stay at least two meters away from other people whenever you go out.
To emphasise the importance of social distancing, director Nicolai Kornum released a new short film called Keep Your Distance, which can be viewed in the player below. The three minute short stars actor and musician John Whitaker as a man who wanders around the streets of London while being followed by another man played by M.W. Daniels, who does not appear to respect physical distancing. The shocking ending clearly showcases how dangerous close contact can be in times like these, so this is clearly a film with an important message. If you have friends who think social distancing is not important, you should probably show them this.
Kornum previously created the horror anthology The Isolation Horrors, which also featured Whitaker and Daniels. Keep Your Distance was shot entirely in black and white on his iPhone, and does not contain a single word of dialogue, but still manages to deliver a powerful message which we all need to be aware of. So if you’re in the mood for some relevant and artsy filmmaking, you’ll probably enjoy this creepy short.
