Roger is a comedy short film starring John Bradley and Seann Walsh, which is being shown at film festivals during 2016.

The film is about Stephen who arrives home after six months away to discover his best friend Roy has replaced him with a ventriloquist doll called Roger.

The self-funded film was shot over a couple of days in London in February 2016.

Talking about the stars, writer/director Brendan Cleaves says: "John and Seann were hilarious together. It was like they'd been best mates for years." Writer Stuart Foreman adds: "We're delighted with what we shot and can't wait to share it with the world. Hopefully this will lead to something even bigger."

To help with post-production costs, a Kickstarter campaign has been setup. Rewards for early backers include an on-screen associate producer credit, signed scripts and VIP tickets to the London screening.
