Synopsis

Peter, a self-important guy is waiting at a bench in the park with a velvet box in hand. He's about to propose to his girlfriend Sarah, until, to his utter frustration, his old friend and the town drunk, Dave, turns up.

Description of the Project

Low budget.

Three characters.

One park bench.

This is how Interception came alive:  A clever comedy with a surprising but hilarious twist! Help us utilize the talented cast and crew to make a comedy gem for the festival circuit.

Cast

Our brilliant cast: Ben Gardner Gray as Peter, Francesca Fraser as Sarah and Nigel Thomas as Dave.

BEN GARDNER GRAY  

Ben has appeared in more than 20 short films and 8 feature films, the most recent playing the lead in 'Eden Lodge,' which was released in 2015 with Signature Entertainment.' An experienced, and alented screen actor, he tries to maintain a sense of humour about himself and the film industry.

FRANCESCA FRASER

Although she is relatively new to the film scene, she has already had lots of interest and had success working on other projects including, playing the role of Charlotte in “Unattainable” and Samantha in the South Indian film “White." Talented and beautiful Francesca was a clear leading lady for Interception.

Nigel has most recently performed as 'Frank' in the new feature film thriller Candlestick, which has its US première this April in Los Angeles.
