"Young. Vulnerable. Blood on his hands. For Cillian, the next ten minutes are perhaps his most important."

The Operator is a 2016 short, English, independent dramatic film exploring the mind of a teenager who becomes overwhelmed by his situation. The film is written by Zain Khan, and co-directed by Zain Khan and Matt Senior. It is Khan's début film.
Production lasted for five months. Khan reached out to Senior through Instagram and asked him to get involved after watching his film Life (AKA The Boy Who Commits a Murder). Senior agreed, and became associate producer. As rehearsals went on, Senior became the script developer, executive producer, editor, coach and eventually co-director. Senior decided to join the project so that Khan's first film would be high quality.
