Cut It Out is an absurd surrealist character piece that follows Tara, an EOD technician (bomb defuser) who is guided by an authoritative voice to locate and defuse a bomb in a school.
The bomb is unfamiliar to her, and despite her reservations, her supervisor leads her into a strange situation from which she needs to escape.
This is the first short film that I have had the pleasure of writing and directing. I worked with a 9-person team on this project, and my work also included art directing, storyboarding, animatic and editing.
