This project required a complete reworking due to Covid-19 restrictions
Originally planned to be shot on location at several nationwide events, until suddenly...there were no events. In response, we took the decision to build this project around user-generated content. Great in principle, but we were concerned about the quality of footage (and mostly the sound) we were likely to receive. To remedy this, I proposed a ‘how to’ film explaining simple tips to shoot films on your phone, and got my family in as cast and crew...not for the last time in 2020.
So that was it: One film explaining the process, one film dealing with whatever came back! For me, what we achieved with the footage is a really touching piece of work, undeniably placed in a historical moment, right at the start of the pandemic.
