TWO METERS CLOSE
WINNER | BEST DANCE FILM PAMA 2021
WINNER | BEST EDITOR PAMA 2021
Two humans face each other 2 meters apart, in a Lockdown dream amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic. Fear has replaced trust; distance has replaced intimacy. They step out together, will they bridge the gulf between them?
TOGETHER is a short film born out of the ongoing experience of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.
We were brought in by our good friends at Kraken Films to creatively develop this film, with Donshades acting as a writer and then co-director.
We wanted to express the raw emotion of the COVID-19 experience in a way that resonated with a global audience. The universal anger, frustration, loss, confusion and fear that has swept through our lives.
The overarching sentiment: For those who have felt alone. We are TOGETHER.
Produced by our good friends, Kraken Films.
