Time To Pay

About Time to Pay

It's six hours until the end of the world. What would you do?

Time to Pay is a short thriller written and produced by Derek Parsons and directed and edited by Ben Grace. In Time to Pay we follow Joe, a young man with a dark secret who decides that he has nothing left to lose.  The apocalypse may be coming but either way, it's the end of the road for Michael. After a day of rehearsals with cast and crew, Time to Pay was shot in one continuous take.
