The script and the concept of the swift shift between self-loathing and self-loving is inspired by our own experiences as film makers and creatives. The creative process, for us at least but we think many would agree, is a constant rollercoaster of light hubris and complete self-loathing, more often the latter. And making this film was no exception: “this is great, this completely crap, well at least it’s original”. Mixing a slightly raw, grainy 16mm film look and visual effects is something we’ve been wanting to do for years and pitched over and over again, but weirdly enough no one else has been equally keen so we’re thrilled that it finally got made (albeit in a smaller scale on a £1400 budget).
