No Presents For Paul is an example of one of the earliest shorts we made, way back in 2003. The whole endeavour was shot in our tool shed in the back garden for about £5, and was inspired by a plan to kidnap a friend who had pissed me off. I tried to get him to play the role, but instead co-director of Vacuum, Mark Lowe, took the brunt.
