    'Terminated' (2011) is an experimental short film by Tobias Deml. We meet a crying, devastated young man on a bus station in a world that is running backwards. After we find out what happened to him, time reverses and destiny changes, tragically reuniting him with a person he felt very connected to. Starring Darrel Cherney, Bruce St. Martin and Heidi Herrmann.

    The film's narrative bends time and reality, shot in a one-shot aesthetic, with a guerilla-style production ... which led to some risky business.

    Complete list of credits on the film's website: Credits of TERMINATED

  • The Firefighters and Police showed up on set - our Guerilla-style shoot with risky content attracted too much attention, even from 9-1-1 emergency calls ... with a ton of luck we got away with it.
  • The Office Space before Production Designer Ferdinand Spalt got his hands on it...!
  • Real Guerilla Style: with a self-built shoulder mount, DP Hiroki Kamada is framing the opening shot of the film, while 1st AC Teruaki Onodera pulls focus by "feeling"; no followfocus rig or focus marks were used.
  • The lighting setup of the office scene, whatever we could pull together from our college's equipment room .. got pretty crowded in there!
  • The Team behind "TERMINATED".
