"ABBIE" 2010 / COMEDY / 8MINS   

In a dystopian corporate world, idealistic Abbie embarks on the first day of her new job with nervous delight. Her excitement however, is quickly thwarted by the cold intolerance of The Boss and a failed attempt to make friends. The rigid office eventually proves too much even for the indomitable Abbie, but friendships can be found in unexpected places.

 Writer / Director  Erin Good  & Producer  Taylor Litton-Strain  received the Metro Screen First Break Fund to make "Abbie".

The films that we judged the winners... were the films that challenged our understanding of the world as we know it through an original, fresh perspective.

The Australians kicked it up a notch with “Abbie”, directed by Erin Good. This one was just good-hearted and whimsical, following Abbie on her first day at major corporation full of mindless workers, which she refuses to be. There’s a child-like quality to Abbie as she explores this new world with curiosity, finding fun in everything from the tape dispenser to the keyboard. This was just a beautiful film that I don’t think could ever be pulled off by an American director. Also, it was the only multimedia film of the evening, featuring a really nice animation sequence at the end. Easily, this was the biggest surprise of the evening.
