A piece for two very awesome people called Hillary and Anna, who are making a full-length feature film this summer called ‘Soundtrack to Sixteen’, about two socially illiterate teenagers who find each other amongst the stress and mediocrity of school-life and exams.
This is a movie poster for their website, which will be launching later tonight.
They gave me a list of objects and motifs from the film, told me about the main characters and I translated it all into this whilst also trying to convey the whole ‘coming of age’ feel. I had a lot of fun and I read their script last night with them and I think it’s going to be a really great project. The script is very much based on their own experiences of school life which is what I love most about it. The whole thing is totally believable, relatable and honest.
