Messiah directed by Anthony Dickenson

What would happen if Jesus miraculously appeared in modern day Hackney - would people believe he was the Messiah, a "cereal-eating hipster", or just a very naughty boy? Anthony Dickenson once again flexes his comedy muscles and displays his directing prowess in new short Messiah, written and commissioned by VCCP Blue and produced in-house at OB Management. Creatives Chris Willis and Colin McKean wrote the screenplay as part of an internal screenwriting competition at VCCP and approached OB Management with the opportunity to realise the film in all its absurd glory. Anthony Dickenson seemed the obvious fit, following on from the success of his first short The Life of Jimmy Horton, continuing to prove he's a natural when it comes to working with actors and 'sharp as a tack' performance dialogue. Anthony is represented by OB Management as an independent director.
