4. After glancing casually at a mannequin in a shop window, a man does a double-take, then steadies himself and walks on.

5. A door opening onto a red corridor.

6. Everything stops working, all at once. They assume it’s a power cut.

7. A man tweets about an anthropomorphic bird while sitting on the loo.

8. The electric fan blows her hair into your face.

9. Rain on dark windows.

10. He pushes the door, trying to get into the shop, despite the “Closed” sign.
