A short film written by me, directed by Matthew Highton and produced by Stuart Laws for Turtle Canyon Comedy, staring David Mills and myself. An aspiring young musician named Robert Johnson is desperate to follow in the footsteps of his more famous namesake and sell his soul to the Devil in order to become the world’s greatest blues guitarist. After the deal is struck, however, he realises that what he’s actually done is agree to hire the Devil as his guitar teacher for several years.
