Game Play is a short 3 minute action thriller film. It follows a small boy, Jack, and his vivid imagination as he is made to play outside away from his computer games. To entertain himself he recreates the derelict landscape and 'bad guys' seen in his video game using his imagination. Whilst the audience sees into Jack's mind, the dad is left puzzled as his son roles around and mimes shooting thin-air. However so immersed in Jack's own world he fails to differentiate between fantasy and reality, creating a shocking end to the film.
