The Rubbish in Your Head


Arriving home, ken pulls out a tooth eating a chocolate toffee bar. Minutes after discarding the tooth, he finds another, very ugly part of himself growing in his rubbish bin.

Bill Buckhurst plays the smug office clone whose identity begins to unravel as he bites into a particularly sticky chocolate bar.

Brendan McGinty lit the picture and also teamed up with me on the production design. Matt Jackson was on sound. Richard Shaw at Swordfish cut on Avid and Ben Lee-Delisle wrote the suitably weird and insidious electronic score.

I no longer much care for the title but I think the core idea is pretty solid and the final execution quirky and disturbing enough. Feels very true to the way dream. The bad dreams, that is.
