10¢ A Minute


....Your conscience WILL catch up with you!


Razz is going mad! He is a high profile journalist that casually discarded his ideals at the first sign of success. Every event, every milestone in his career has been shadowed and mocked. Every time. It rings, always ringing from the past to haunt him. 

“10 ¢ A Minute” is a 23 Minute allegorical film shot on Super 16mm, about a journalist with a conscience…and how it will catch up with you!! The film tells the story of Rasputin “Razz” Bender a young idealistic journalist. 

It begins in his small dingy apartment early in his career. Razz utilizes the free hallway phone to help with his journalistic duties. Soon he is offered jobs that pay a lot but do not always agree with his personal ideals or morals. He takes the money. His career gains momentum. But at every milestone he hears the unforgettable ring of the phone from his past. The greater the success, the more the phone rings. He can’t avoid it. Finally, he reaches his end; Razz decides to confront what has been dogging him. In a desperate attempt to end this madness, he rushes back to that old apartment to destroy the phone that’s been haunting him…only to find the building abandoned and the phone lying on the floor, in pieces. As he is about to leave, it rings. He picks up, on the other end...
