Elbows – A short film

Hi everyone,
Richie suggested I share this so I shall. This is another short film I directed, this time a surreal comedy about how a bad day can always get stranger. Please feel free to have a watch if you like. I hope you enjoy it and let me know your thoughts. We’re going in to shoot another short in two weeks time before starting pre-production on our first feature!

hi lovely people; praying for Richie and his protection. A true voice for truth. I’ll leave this here – for those who are heavy hearted, https://subspla.sh/scrghq9


Hayden- you can make a film of this! You can’t make this stuff up, can you? Not only do they have the entire Greek alphabet to use, they now have the ‘sub’ variants.. BEWARE ‘Son of Omicron’. Are there people out there seriously still taking this on board? Seriously? NSW government was warned Omicron could lead to more hospitalisations days before restrictions lifted (msn.com)

Hahahhaha strange but funny πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜„


Elbows! A great watch… albeit bizzare.

Richie? Did you stick Hayden in your ear?


it was alright. was going to start by saying the writing was on the wall in the first clip, but thought no give it a chance. a touch of the acid house short films from welshes book ? that were made into short films. decent acting and great sound to be fair. the doctor being full of shite sat well with me, or should that be shat well with me. hayden not sure if you read the comments, but one of my favourite films is called ” a room for romeo brass ” by shane meadows it was made on a shoestring budget, he had paddy considine in it to be fair, but he was not that well known, it is a classic that nobody i have known or met has seen it, sometimes i used to think i dreamt the fucking thing up in my head. point being mate, you don’t need millions to make good art or film. good luck going forward with it.


You gave the ending away which always spoils it for me 😫.
That and rubber rings can be a pain in the ass.

Hayden Hewitt – the Salvador Dali of whatever it actually is.

Patricia Deakin

Very funny Hayden, the acting was great too


Looking forward to the return of the BBG. Hopefully this will be next week?

Danny Warden

I preferred the one before this about the homeless guy.
This one went over my head

Tony K

Over your head?
Watch it till it goes into your head.
You’ll get it then, and it will be accompanied by a passing headache.


Spookily accurate and ironically on Microsoft’s video website.

This just out from Australia-‘SON OF OMICRON’ You seriously can’t make this stuff up!
Where’s Richie when you need him! NSW reports 52 Covid deaths in deadliest day of pandemic to date as β€˜son of Omicron’ variant cases emerge (msn.com)


It’s all a fabricated monumental lie!

Although I completely believe in the plan-demic, these show that the video was not made in the 1930s but was much more recent: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/early-warning-cartoon-30s/



Blimey, Hayden, there’s so much gushing going on you might think about laying down a PVC sheet.


SMFAO OMG WOW!! Legendary Hayden! A Mastershiites!

Linda to Nathan: “The things he could do with Pivots, was nobodies business!”

Elsewhere in the Universe!…

“He was like a set of pistons in a ocean liner engine. The positions he bent me into! The things that boy could do with Alphabetti Spaghetti!”….

“A-L-P-H-A B-E-T-T-I …S-P-A-G-H-E-T-T-I”!!!!!


That Joe Black moment too! So cool!

I love it Hayden and the music from Gavin Morrow, is sublimely awesome too. Right up there with the RAVENOUS soundtrack from Damon Alban!

That’s a gem right there Black Octopus Productions and ENCORE, BRAVO, ENCORE!! Pretty Shitty City please! πŸ˜‰

I’m gonna have to spread that far & wide! Sadly a bit like poor Nathan! πŸ˜‰


Truly brilliant old school film work! I love the reveal, how the office is shared. Spooky boss lady at the window…a bit of a jump scare. The pen was so scary! We all know that moment of ‘Uh-oh…did that just happen? Is something really wrong?’, and then the shock and uncertainty that follows. I loved boss lady, Linda, in his face, then talking about wax removal at her hairdressers. Every performance is strong. The music is perfect, weaving the tale well. The whole thing is disturbing as hell, yet with substance–I haven’t seen a short like this in ages. It captures an era. Thank you and Bravo! All good luck on your feature!


Shitcrazy Haydon, well done.

Anne Talbot

This is excellent ! Truth and humour, we so need the humour.

Noel cox

Thanks for that hayden

The question is – after the big push; did they or did they not come out?


Everything came out and Nathan went on to find a job he preferred. He hopes that eventually he won’t need to use a rubber ring to sit down.


“Nathan could perhaps take a leaf, or two, from the late great Carlins’ Bowels of Fountainous Knowledge, and soften the splash landings, with the provided in shite pillow!”

“Gee, that’s all I need, to be in the Mid-Atlantic, clinging to a pillow made of beer farts!!” πŸ˜‰


As Brodie once put it in ‘Mall Rats’…..

“Jesus, there’s just some things you don’t ask!!” πŸ˜‰

Patricia Deakin

They did, did you not hear the doctor scream πŸ˜‚


Objective achieved!
As it’s most definitely funny and bat shit crazy strange!! (Pun intended!)
Very well done with a good cast, visuals and sound effects!!

Watched it twice now and on the second pass, I couldn’t help but think about the predictament our globalist friends have put us through for the last two years and wouldn’t it be fantastic if it could all be “purged” down the toilet bowl in a similar fashion.

The voices in the head and afterlife elements are also a tad spooky.

I will need time to recover from this Hayden!

Oh and while I think of it… Elbows is an anagram for Bowels!!

Was that intentional??

Or is that just the residual voices f🀬n with my mind too!!!



Thank you πŸ™‚ No time to recover, our next film starts shooting on the second week of February!


You’re very welcome and I can’t wait!!
And the best of luck with it too!

David Keen

Another fantastic production Hayden


Thank you πŸ™‚
