The title of “Russian Roulette,” the latest short film in our Screening Room series, is a play on words—we’re watching a comedy, not a tragedy. She’s about to give up on this cast of drips when, closing her laptop, she hears a voice protesting from within it, almost as if the machine is asking not to be put away.Lucy (Bec Hill), a lonely Australian woman living in London, talks to people on a Chatroulette-like site that connects a rotating group of strangers. It’s Yergey (Stewart Lockwood), a Russian astronaut—a maintenance man on a deep-space telescope. The director of “Russian Roulette,” Ben Aston, is twenty-nine years old.Aston had seen Lockwood, who is British, playing a “wacky Russian neighbor,” as he put it, in a film in school, and wanted him to co-star. Their scenes were shot separately; they never actually met.

Chatroulette focuses on one-to-one contact, but you can move on from one video chat to another by hitting "next." The site rolled out with local features called Localroulette that snatched users' IP addresses, but the idea didn't take off--the Web page for the local service doesn't exist anymore.The space scenes were shot on a Webcam, for fuzziness.
