For all nick's thought's, comments & observations on the shoot and more!

Nick, who wrote “For Want of a Nail”, was inspired to do so as a cathartic experience to try and get to grips with his Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. He was aware of recurring compulsions and intrusive thoughts from an early age, but had no idea what OCD was – so these things just became a part of his everyday life, but remained something of an embarrassment to be kept secret. After years of keeping his OCD to himself, Nick thought it was about time he dealt with it head-on. In recent years the effects of his OCD were becoming more aggressive, so he finally decided to write about what the condition feels like, framing it within a 'nightmare scenario'. And yet it was always important to Nick to maintain a sense of humour throughout the screenplay, affording Marty, the protagonist, a sardonic self-awareness to balance out the darker dramatic elements of the story.
