Harry said: "Lonely Guy, I hope, is an odd, slightly humorous film about loneliness. I also hope it’s relatable. I think most of us have been in a similar situation to the lad sat at the bus stop in the film. I just decided to take it a little further.
"We shot Lonely Guy on zero budget, actually that’s not true, we shot for the price of three pizzas, garlic bread and a crate of coke (coca-cola) for when we wrapped back at my flat. The location was an out of use bus stop in Hulme, which thankfully between the hours of 9-11 was quiet enough to get this three minute take in the can.
"I didn’t intend for this short to be particularly funny like with my previous short films, it was more an experiment in style and process. My aim is to do an 80 minute feature film as soon as I possibly can, and like every filmmaker you’re always thinking about time and money and how to get the most out of these cruel limitations. One way is to not cut of course. A lot of filmmakers use the one take tactically, to pick up lost time. I like it on a stylistic level and know that if i want to incorporate it in a longer film, which I do, I might as well get a head start on experimenting with it now."
Harry is currently making a film a month throughout 2016.
