The idea was based on personal experiences of living in a country with narrow pavements and feeling aggrieved that I was the person always getting out of the way.  I imagined what it would be like to one day refuse to move and what if I met someone just as stubborn?

 

It was the first time I wrote comedy and based the idea on myself.  The script was accepted on the One Minute Wonder competition set up by Screen South and the UK Film Council.  With their support I produced and directed the film.  Age Concern competed with nine other films and won the award.
