"Safety Grant" is a short film, written and directed by Christina Estillore. It's a comical take on the necessary safety precautions one must take when enjoying a night out. It follows two parallels of a good night with good decision making, and a bad night with poor decision making. The final outcome is a sobering reminder that a night of fun can have fatal consequences.


We filmed across two days at three separate locations. Our most dramatic shots required filming late into the night and it was definitely chilly! But we loved the drama of the cold night air, the falling snow and the harsh, bright light of truck headlights as a stark contrast to the literal and figurative darkness of the scene.


I love being able to use only practical lighting to light a scene, it feels more true to life and natural.
