Ep156 The Truthful Phone

February 5th, 2016

The Truthful Phone is based by a Terry Jones (Monty Python) short story of the same name, supported in part by the Film Agency Wales with BAFTA nominated director Carl Rock.

The Truthful Phone is a dark comedy about nasty pensioner Mae Morris; local busybody, pet kidnapper, husband killer. Who unwittingly unleashes a magical gypsy curse that exposes her secrets to the very townsfolk she lives to torment.

With Puppets created by Andy Heath & Iestyn Evans who worked on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Terry Jones said: 

“I’m delighted that The Truthful Phone is being given the opportunity to be made into a film short; director Carl Rock comes from the same part of Wales as I do. The Welsh landscape is a perfect setting for this tale, and I hope the Kickstarter campaign reaches its target so that a wider audience can enjoy this dark fantasy comedy”.

Carl optioned this story three years ago. We have been granted the rights to make this film by Terry Jones himself.
