The piece was written as a side-line to an on-going project which focuses on nostalgia and memories in a quintessentially British landscape. Based on autobiographical stories, and telling the unashamed secrets of long, lost friends, growing up and losing the innocent mischief we all conjure as a child, the short film works aesthetically to affect the audience, and involves the senses of those watching and hearing in an interactive way.
Shot, and hand-processed on super 8mm film.
The soundtrack was recorded completely un-sync.
