The Chop


Terry’s done a bad thing, but why?

We made The Chop for the challenge of telling a quick story, with a slight twist in the tail (if you’ll excuse the pun). We set-up, shot and cleared out of the location in under three hours (while working with a dog actor). Then all the post from the grade to the sound mix happened the next day. We couldn’t have made it without a lot of generous, talented folk and are so incredibly happy with the final film.

Jennifer Sheridan is an award winning director and editor from London. Her short Rocket, won the grand prize at the Virgin Media Shorts competition in 2012 and since then she has directed six more award winning shorts. Nominated for Best New Director at the D&AD Awards 2017; she is currently in development with First Look Media (NY), on a digital series and shooting her debut horror feature next year.



Terry is determined to keep hold of his most prized possessions. This is one trip to the vets that no one will forget.
