The Night Passenger

Directed by Josh Bowman
Narrative Short
USA | 27 min | 2021

Marty is going through a crisis and is hanging on by a thread. After discovering a man tied up in his trunk things go from bad to worse. Worse being a psychopathic Irishman who joins Marty on a journey through the city of LA.

I hope you enjoy “The Night Passenger”. We wanted to take a story that has perhaps been told before but tell it in an original way that is evocative of my taste as a young filmmaker. we shot our previous short film in natural light and therefore saw this film as a huge challenge, shooting for 5 nights in Los Angeles and the surrounding area, with the constraints of shooting in and around a car, with a very limiting budget. We also wanted to give the audience a story with a real beginning, middle and end, which so many “short films” are missing these days. It has been extremely humbling to be graced with a supremely talented team for the shoot and post production and we would love to be considered for your festival so “The Night Passenger” can be seen by a much wider audience.

I hope you and your loved ones are all healthy and safe at this time.

Warm regards,
Josh Bowman
