A part of the Auckland Fringe Festival 2013
I have a lot of friends that recently finished film school. Seeing a large pool of talented people struggling to get their own projects up, I decided to try making a feature length film comprised of shorts, allowing all of these people to be involved in something big.
The films aim to explore the idea of conversation - why, where, when we do it, and how it affects us. In eleven vignettes, we see people talking to each other in an attempt to make sense of themselves and the world they're in. These conversations are a give-and-take not only between the characters but also the film makers and their audience. Every time we speak we reveal a wealth of information about ourselves, yet none of us know how we will be interpreted.
Virginia wants to buy a bird. Laura just had her last exam. Dan thinks Will is nice. Alice is pregnant. Denny is sad. Peter might jump off a bridge. Renee is trying. Zara thinks Rose is a hypocrite. Julie's mum is dead.Karen hates pink.
Everyone needs to talk. We all hope someone is listening.
