    Freelancer Comedy Short

    “Free from the rat race. Free from the trappings of structure and stability, a mortgage, the respect of your parents. You chose this life, you chose freedom, you chose… you.” Ahhh yes, the glory of being a freelancer. Or is it pain? Nowadays, a good bit of both, though leaning much more towards the latter. Freelancer is a hilarious 8-minute short film that debuted earlier in the year – worth a watch. It’s directed by a filmmaking duo known as “Rosco 5” in London; written by and stars the 42-year-old British-Iranian actor / comedian Babak Ganjei – “who acts like a 25-year-old indie freelancer.” He has to navigate single parenting, working under his own steam and the onset of middle age, and this is a guide to that “lifestyle.” This is intended to be a pitch for a sitcom, but it also works perfectly as an under-10-minute short film that very precisely skewers the modern freelancer experience with a big helping of irony. “You’ve done the work, you have to get paid.”
