  • 1. First I’d like to say thank you very much for having me on the show, but in answer to your question of course it has elements of a generic coming of age film
  • 2. for example out main character is a teenager, we do have themes of loss of innocence, parties, alcohol and the general experimentation you would expect
  • 3. We were keen not to tone it down to specifically tailor to a more reserved audience, it’s important that these themes are talked about and recognised through our main character
  • 4. I think its important to give women opportunities in filmmaking as well as acting, as naturally Beth and I were female filmmakers in a predominantly male industry,
  • 5. however I think its unfair to suggest our recognition was for out gender and not by merit.
  • 6. I do understand the points you’ve raised Betty, but with regard to the male as the dominant role I’d disagree
  • 7. you clearly see that the male is more insignificant than the female as the male specifically does not get a face, and lacks representation, as we wanted our main character to be the main focus
  • 8. which had the side effect of disallowing any other character, even a male character, from taking dominance
  • 9. With regards to the shot of the man leading the women up the stairs, we thought it would be too overwhelming for the woman to do it,
  • 10. as it would have echoes of a more femme fatal character, which we wanted to avoid.
  • 11. It’s good you picked up on that actually. After long thought, we deliberately chose not to name our main character, it’s not about her or a specific girl’s story
  • 12. which is something that challenges usual coming of age stories, which are very much people orientated, building up backgrounds and an intimate relationship with the characters
  • 13. As you said our film a representation of all teenagers, her having no name emphasises more that she could be anyone.
  • 14. I think this allowed us to be more liberal about how we presented the story, it could be more metaphorical
  • 15. something which is not always seen in the coming of age genre and that’s probably something we’ve developed.
  • 16. With regards to comments on risk, there have been many box office successful films that used blatant metaphors.
  • 17. A good example of this is American Beauty, which uses the symbolism of a rose throughout the film, so we are developing ideas that already work
  • 18. Yes it is more unusual to see an experimental style film, but when you look at the film in the context that it is a short film
  • 19. it makes more sense as short films tend to be more experimental pieces than feature films.
  • 20. I think a huge source of inspiration for me was music videos, there are such a variety out there and they’ve really developed into a separate media category.
  • 21. For example, after we decided to include a beach scene, I looked at the ways many different directors presented this setting
  • 22. I really liked William Williamson’s use of the beach a Keaton Henson music video, our beach is almost a homage to this,
  • 23. using similar lovely pastel colours and a more humble representation of the beauty of the seaside.
  • 24. Yeah, you are completely correct, I think Beth and I have almost created a special style, which we used in our last film Dated, and developed in Adolescence as well.
  • 25. Our use of extremely fast paced editing, which in this film was in the party sequence is quite unique to us, going between two different things at the same time
  • 26. Another thing that isn’t unusually seen is specifically trying to disconnect our audience from the scene they’re watching,
  • 27. seeking to make it almost more metaphorical than realistic, reminding them it’s a representation not just about the one girl.
  • 28. In the party scene we cut to images of the girl looking at the camera on her own, but still acting as if she is at the party, , which gives the impression we are inside her head and just seeing her feelings on her own
  • 29. Also the majority of coming of age films focus on the technology that is so key in a teenagers lives today,
  • 30. we still have an ode to it in the fact all the writing and titles in the film are typed out on the screen, as if on a computer.
