Sam Hill - 29th Aug 2013

Oh, isn't being a teenager complicated?  Teenage dreams are, in all actuality and unfortunately, not of the Katy Perry ilk.  Here, Jack King has perfectly imagined how confusing, sexy, terrifying and overly baffling teenage dreams can be.  This ultimately involves tyrannical PE teachers, tormenting trips to the doctor and visits from a beautiful lady.

Jack as shots this all in lovely, hazy glitter vision.  Admirably self-produced and edited too.

Jack King: "A little nod to John Hughes.  We shot this in two days in a disused retail unit with a big glass front we had to black out, where me and the camera guys also slept, right next door to the biggest and latest opening Lloyds bar bang in the middle of the city centre.  

"Needless to say our dreams were also interrupted, not by P.E teachers but by the sound of drunken twats banging on the glass windows all night.

"It was a great shoot otherwise, great cast and team, it was a laugh to make when things weren't going wrong."
