The Bachelor Tree

Miss Peep (a murderous old widow) meets a handsome man who came to stay, and a tree with some unusual fruit.

Film notes

We made this as our graduate film for UCA Farnham, on a budget of £3,500 (most of which went on petrol), as a labour of love. We wanted to make something silly and bawdy, with an old 'English' sense of humour that you don't really see too much of nowadays. It exists to be entertaining and inconsequential, a vaudeville piece in some seaside theatre, or a pantomime that pulls its audience along and asks for nothing more than they forget the world around them- just for fifteen minutes- and enjoy themselves. When it ends, the viewer should be left with a smile; and the feeling that they’ve reconnected with something magical, a sense of fun that perhaps isn’t really found anywhere else these days.
