Black comedy Short


One small random act of malice forces an ordinary man off the safe road and on to a dark journey he'll never forget.

"Wonderfully dark and entertaining, and absurdly funny"

Wolfgang Petersen

Ripple was Paul & Jim's first short film made back in 2008. We're still very fond of it. Filmed over 4 nights and a day on location in Hertfordshire. It stars Ben Crompton as a man on a journey to visit his girlfriend. When an egg thrown from a motorway bridge hits his windscreen, his day starts to spiral out of control.
