The World Turns



With help from Saloon Films, we present the 60–second trailer for British Director Nick Ray Rutter’s short film, ‘The World Turns’, which previews the epic and gritty story of Kevin and his dramatic day which takes an unexpected turn.

The 18-minute short film, previewing now, is a story of fear, consequence and redemption. Kevin, played by British actor Ricci Harnett (28 Days Later), stars in the short and executes an emotion-led performance. Filmed in inner-city London the graphic trailer sets the scene perfectly for what is set to be a gripping film.

Emmy-nominated director Rutter started his career assisting directors such as Spike Jonze, Kevin Godley and Fredrik Bond. Since then, he has gone on to direct many short films and commercials including the Cannes Lion Award-winning Heineken campaign 'Entrance'.

The Mill's Charlotte Carr completed the online edit and Colourist Luke Morrison created the distinctively gritty grade under Rutters' close direction.
