Two Male Actors requiried for short in Manchester
Through the film we are experiencing with one mans struggle with his sexuality and the way in which society demonised homosexuals through propaganda advertised by the press.
The character of Danny, is a traditional example of male masculinity with a plot that demands vulnerability, taking a look into the way that masculinity in the 80’s had a play in the way men victimised others. His love interest Jamie is a emotionally flawed character who attaches himself to men as he doesn’t feel comfortable being alone.
Within this film I want to show the realism of modern characters and show the effect that social changes would have had on the characters self esteem during this time period.
Though the non linear narrative I'm experimenting with the use of timelines to evoke meaning.
This meaning surrounds itself around the way in which we love; comparing past relationships (in then original 1980’s timeline), which were created through natural encounters, with modern homosexual relationships which were created through technological interaction through apps such as Grindr.
