Awesome team!!
Yeah right? :D
I want more facts!!!!
Typing... is 15min30sec, a drama short in Dutch or English
Mira is consumed by her imagination, picturing the people she is texting with. When the boy she kissed last night stops typing, she can't help thinking: what could be distracting him?
I (Mirthe Venbrux) graduated from the Utrecht School of the Arts as a writer & director and Typing... was my graduation film. I'm currently working on another short film in which you hear the main character's thoughts.
By the way: Typing... has both an English version (vimeo.com/venbrux/typing-en) and Dutch version (vimeo.com/venbrux/typing-nl), and a trailer, in case you need it: vimeo.com/venbrux/typingtrailer
