Fringe is over, but that doesn’t mean you have to leave scene-stealer John Noble behind. A teaser trailer has been released for the short film Friend, which stars Noble with a script he co-produced with his daughter Jess Noble, who wrote the script. It has no relation to Fringe, but the show’s director of photographer David Geddes worked as the director and cinematographer on Friend. As you can see from the teaser, it looks like a fairly intense short with a strong performance by Noble.
Hit the jump to check out the teaser. Friend is currently going out on the festival circuit.
Here’s the brief synopsis for Friend:
A lonely, grief stricken man of wealth finds a new lease on life after an unusual ‘friend’ is mysteriously delivered to his door. A unique and unexpected relationship quickly forms, bringing hope and color to the man’s bleak existence. But will tragedy strike again?”
And here’s what Noble had to say about the short:
Friend was a labor of love. During the turbulent last stage of filming the Fringe series finale, my Fringe colleagues gave their precious time and amazing talent to realize my daughter Jessie’s beautiful short film. Two intense and fun filled days of filming, and then over to Ari Margolis and Jeremy Little to weave their magic with the editing and score. It was an unforgettable experience. I adore the film. Sad, and funny, and special.
