UK SHORT FILM: ‘DAD IN A DAY’
Cousin’s Marcus Noble and Rakeem Noble (2Noble Entertainment) have come together to create the 36 minute short film Dad in a Day. The short is written and directed by Marcus (20), a Film and Digital Arts degree student at The BRIT School in Croydon and his cousin Rakeem (23), a law graduate co-produced and also stars in the project.
‘Dad in a Day’ is a story that follows Reece (Marcus Noble) an everyday young man’s coming of age. After finding out life changing news and having the pressure of responsibility riding on his shoulders, as well as past relationships resurfacing, Reece has to make important decisions about his future.
In an interview with The Voice Rakeem said,
“We wanted to make a film that black men our age could relate too, such as the lack of a father figure. The story looks at the everyday life of an ordinary guy faced with problems that affect him.” (Click here to read the full article).
I enjoyed Dad in a Day. I think a lot of male viewers will be able to relate to Reece’s story, and thankfully this story does not enter in to gang culture/road man antics territory which is a major relief.
