This is our film produced as part of the 2014 Southampton Film Week 48 hour film challenge.
The length of the film was limited to 4 minutes for the competition, but this Director’s Cut is marginally longer. The concept for the film was deliberately novel, in order to produce a non-linear film. There is only one actress, but two roles, whereby the actress converses with her opposite ‘other’ throughout the film. In the first half she plays the role of a scared, hesitant character; in the second half she plays the role of the arrogant, confident character. In a novel twist, in each half of the film, only the dialogue of the ‘active’ character can be heard – the responses of the other character can only be heard in the other half of the film, at a different time, but in the same location. The flow of time, and the order of events is deliberately confusing. The ending of the film is also the start, hence the name of the film – ‘LOOP’. The video is designed to be watched in ‘loop mode’, whereby the video starts again immediately, once it reaches the end.
