The Silent Man is a dark surreal short film by artist writer director Charlotte Colbert about a young lady (Sophie Kennedy Clark) who attempts to recapture the magic of a doomed relationship - by ordering a life-size doll of Cillian Murphy in his exact image. 
Textures, patterns & lighting were key in setting a darkly visceral atmosphere in a short filmed in monochrome. The design of the film took inspiration from a broad range of Surrealist and Modernist art, sculpture & film and involved considerable prop making as well as grafting the prosthetic face of Cillian Murphy onto a sex doll.
