When I'm Famous

About: Made on a wing and a prayer and handful of stale cheese sandwiches, we're please to present our ultra-NO-budget short film WHEN I'M FAMOUS -- A gritty, realist view of Britain's disaffected youth as 19-year-old Noah pinball's hard between his dreams of becoming famous and the harsh reality of the Job Centre, and dealing with being made homeless in the process...

NOTE: There are a few contextual swear words in the film, but nothing gratuitous.
