About

Significant Others worked closely with English director Colin O’Toole as well as Final Cut editor James Rosen and Final Cut Head of Audio Patch Rowland to bring this short film, a modern English folktale, to life.

Cowboy Dave is the semi fictional retelling of an encounter director Colin O’Toole had as a 12 year old boy with Dave Rowbotham (Durutti Column, The Mothmen) who was known to some as Cowboy Dave.

Significant Others did cleanup on the film, worked to marry multiple takes, retimed split screens, as well as visual effects designed to root the film firmly in the Manchester of the early ’90s, including dirtying up cars, as well as (no spoilers) blood splatters.
