BAD NEWS is a short film developed as part of a wider creative practice research project that seeks to explore role-playing and simulation as an institutional and corporate training device, and how this might be utilised in fiction filmmaking. The film succeeds in capturing the banalities of corporate middle-management, nailing the awkwardness of delivering the bad news of the title in a “sacking scenario” role-play. This original experiment offers a new twist on improvisation, drawing on applied theatre techniques used in drama-based training to create an unscripted narrative short film that combines fiction and documentary.
