ABOUT

Last month, we won a micro-commission by NOTNOW Collective  to create a short film about parenting during lockdown. We responded with ‘Wavelength’.

‘Wavelength’ covers the importance of mental wellbeing, finding your identity and ways to connect with others. 

  • The short film was shot during COVID restrictions in London and Amsterdam.
  • It was created in 4 weeks from concept to delivery without a regular crew. As well as acting, we each took over the duties of cameraman, DOP, director and producer.
  • We wanted to share a more realistic portrayal of lockdown that we hope resonates with people.
  • We were pleased to portray migrants who have made the UK their home, flagging the importance of mental wellbeing and human connection.

The project is supported by the Arts Council and is ready to watch.

STORY

2021. Lockdown. Stella lives in London. Eleni lives in Amsterdam. They are raising their children away from their families back in Greece. As they cope with the parenting challenges and isolation, an overheard phone call brings them together through a small act of kindness.
