A few days ago, Empire magazine in the UK premiered the trailer for EXAM, a feature film I Associate Produced last year. Almost immediately it was ripped and is now on youtube and a host of other video sites. It will be released in cinemas early next year.
Here is what Empire said…
We’ve been banging on about Stuart Hazeldine’s Exam, since it went down a storm at the Edinburgh Film Festival back in August. And now, with the world exclusive debut of the trailer for the high-concept, low-budget thriller, you’ve got a chance to see why.
The high concept first: coming on like Cube meets The Apprentice, Exam brings together eight disparate people – candidates for an unspecified high-powered job – who find themselves undertaking an exam with a difference. A big difference. A mind-bending, noggin-noodling and potentially fatal difference.
Played out in real time, it’s a crisp, electrifying and often ingenious thriller featuring top-notch turns from Luke Mably, Jimi Mistry, and the godlike Colin Salmon, as a godlike invigilator, and marks out Hazeldine as a real talent to watch.
But don’t take our word for it – check out the trailer and form your own opinions. You will be tested afterwards, so pay close attention.

Onwards and upwards!
