Caught in the Headlights
Caught in the Headlights is an award-winning short film directed by Christopher Bevan, written by Adam Lock and produced by YSP Media. The film follows Keith (Neal Higham), a taxi driver going through a midlife crisis; nothing is going right, he takes the night shifts to forget his worries and buries his issues. One particularly catastrophic night he decides to make a change and face his problems head on.
The film also stars a strong supporting cast including Joseph Maudsley, Lucy Varney, Martin Harvey & Adam Poyzer. The film premiered in June at the Transitions Film Showcase at the QUAD in Derby where it won best picture and the audience award for best picture. Following this the film was nominated for Best Drama at The Smalls Film Festival 2012 and went on to receive the runner up award at Screen Stockport in the Best University Short Film category.
The film was funded through a month long fundraising campaign launched at the end of January 2012. Initially aiming to raise £1000, the target was reached within the first two weeks and the film ended up raising just over £1800 with 70 contributors from the UK and abroad. Filming took place in Derby between 9th-11th March 2012.
