SFotD: ‘Table 7′ is a Spy Drama About Breaking Up

Why Watch? The Continuum has proven itself as a great production company, promoting fresh talent and fresh ideas. In this short from writer/director Marko Slavnic, a couple fights while out at a Chinese restaurant. As they teeter toward the edge of breaking up, a spy is listening to everything they say, but like all good spy dramas, things are not what they seem.

Be it the sweat on the spy’s brow or the relatable (yet never dull) dialogue that makes up the meat of the lover’s spat, this movie is charged with tension. The drama of the fight is an easy hook, but the question of why someone would be listening in while taking notes magnetizes it all. Plus, the acting is all on point, and the camera work and score only help raise the blood pressure that’s just about to boil over when all is revealed.

What will it cost? Around 4 minutes.
