HALF MINDED is a short comedy drama produced by BFI Film Academy students, the next generation of talent for the UK's Film Industry. The short was the culmination of a short course of developing filmmaking skills. The course is a well-established national programme run by the BFI, supporting young filmmakers between 16-25 and giving them the chance to work with industry professionals.
It's a short day-in-the-life moment between best friends Jack and Daniel, who fall out over Daniel's apparent selfishness when Jack invites him out to a party. Daniel get's what's coming after he swoons over an oncoming girl at the bus stop.
