A 10 minute, two-hander set in one location that will be equal parts exhilarating, poignantly heart-wrenching, and yet very funny. In addition to a cracking script, what will really elevate this story is being able to craft electrifyingly natural performances. By casting the net very wide to find the perfect ‘Paula’, and using workshopping techniques I have learnt under social realism master Clio Barnard as her assistant, I plan to workshop our characters extensively to a place where what we are seeing on screen is oozing with nothing but truth.
Using simple, elegant cinematography, we want to generally use traditional coverage and locked-off shots to keep the focus on nothing but the characters – whilst using a handful of artsy extreme closeups to establish a significant story beat, or when one of the character’s attention is momentarily diverted. Although movement is minimal, the subtleties in the blocking will allow us to use body language to metaphorically convey the state of their relationship using interesting frames.
