While on vacation in Morocco, Mara tries to record a video message to her husband but the simple task becomes an ordeal due to some external interference.
Writer/producer/director: Kevin Landry
“Une Pensée pour Robert was created as a ‘challenge film’ for Kino Montreal. This is a monthly tradition at Kino, where directors are imposed one or several restrictions after which, they have a month to shoot a three minute movie.
In this case the title (A Thought For Robert) was mandatory and actors and directors were matched randomly.
The idea was to keep it simple since we only had one month to shoot it which is why the webcam format was used.
As far as the story goes, it came from a brainstorm between the actors and I with the mission of having a comedy with at least an ounce of dramatic tension to it.”
