'First Love' (working title) is a short dramedy about the elderly woman, Mirabel, who after her husband’s death for the first time plucks up the courage to follow her desire and date another woman.

Mirabel meets her date in a small and cozy cafe, for which we would like to find a waiter as well as some people sitting in the background.

The shoot will take place in Finsbury Park, London on Thursday the 7th of March in the afternoon. It will take three hours roughly.

Unfortunately, we are only able to pay expenses within London zone 1-6. Once finished the film can be used for showreel material. Drinks and snacks will be provided.

Synopsis: After her husband's death, Mirabel finally plucks up the courage to follow what she desired most throughout her life, to fully be herself and to be with another woman. Through an ad in one of her magazines, Mirabel arranged a first date. But the day they are supposed to meet it seems as if everything that has kept Mirabel from living out her sexuality through her entire life crashes down on her to prevent her from going. Mirabel's inner doubts and struggle show through the reappearance of her catholic's school nun whispering that Mirabel would be committing a sin, and her dead father who warns to give her good threshing if Mirabel behaves badly again. To top it all, her boiler breaks down, the plumber can't make it on time, and her grandson's babysitter canceled on her daughter, who doesn't understand why Mirabel can't take the time for a family emergency. Mirabel rushes to the agreed cafe to find that the other woman is just about to leave.

For the second year at the Raindance Film School, I am producing a 5-7 minute short film about an elderly woman, who prepares for her first date as a lesbian. It is a dramedy about self-realisation.

Our crew consists of a combination of Raindance students and externals. We are very excited to produce a film that focuses on the unrepresented struggle of an older generation who might still suffer from the consequences of social norms and homophobia.
