DASH is a short film centred around Nick, a social misfit, getting his first tattoo. When a hitman arrives to kill his tattooist Nick’s irritating nature puts him in line for execution first.

Days Left

Nick, thin and awkward, a ‘wannabe gangster,’ enters a tattoo parlour in search of some ink. He hopes it will gain him respect… a bit of dash. A philosophical hitman arrives to execute Nick’s staunch tattooist, Katarine. The hitman accepts one last request; to allow her to complete her final tattoo. She’s only got ten minutes, is it enough time for the tables to turn? Only one of them is walking out of this alive…

A neon-lit sign draws attention to a run-down tattoo parlour, which is nestled amongst the shadows of an inner city street. It’s sometimes frequented by underworld figures and other assorted riff-raff. Humour is a cloak worn by many to hide their true intentions. Everyone is wearing a mask and every now and then someone has to fight or take flight. It’s the sort of world that will make or break you in a heartbeat. To survive you have to show a bit of heart, a bit of ticker, you have to have… dash.

With a drive to create challenging and engaging content, our team is made up of storytellers with a solid track record of translating pages to the screen. We are building our foundations to transition into feature film making and this our proof of concept to take that step.

Dash is currently in development with filming due to start early 2019. We want to secure the most talented cast and crew to bring this project to life. To achieve this we believe in paying all of our team fairly and in accordance with the MEAA Motion Picture Production Agreement.

Contributions to this project will help cover the cost of casting, armourers, locations and set design. Your tax-deductible donation will help produce a professional product aimed towards the 2019 film festival circuit.

If you’re interested in sponsoring the film or becoming a private investor please contact producer: dashshortfilm@gmail.com
