SHORT FILMS 38: Sixty - Cups of Coffee

Reading in a newspaper that drinking 60 cups of coffee could be lethal gave writer Robbie McCallum the inspiration for this darkly comic eight-minute film. For the protagonist, the reasons for the caffeine overload are to "see the view" and find out about truth with a capital T. Texas-based executive producer Raymond Martin insisted the film be shot in Dallas, with its slow-paced "diner culture", so that the event itself would seem even more remarkable.
