..."Severance" Synopsis...

Steve Saddleman, a burned-out internet developer, fancies himself a writer of detective stories. He wants to be tough and suave, a movie hero like Humphrey Bogart, so he can get the girl of his dreams and tell his boss to shove it. Steve, however, is paralyzed by fear: he can't write, quit his job, or express his love. But on his 30th birthday everything changes, as Steve gets a chance to break free from his dead-end existence. Over two weeks time he'll pursue a dream, one filled with the smoke and shadows of film noir... and one that may prove to be just as elusive.

Severance is an independently produced, feature-length comedy (shot on super16mm black and white film) that runs approximately 90 minutes.
