Line of Taxis

Line of Taxis (16mm) 11 minutes

A line of taxis waits in front of the office.
They are “right-sizing” today.

Jack Gilmore arrives at work to find a line of taxis waiting outside the building where he works. They are waiting to take people home after they are laid off. Jack spends his day trying to work, all the time fearing that the next phone call, or the next person to walk by, will tell him it is time for him to go. The office grows quieter as, one by one, his co-workers are led away. Eventually Jack walks the empty corridors alone.

A modern day horror film. Featured actors include Keith D. Humphrey, Carrie Innes and Pamela Sears.
