David Knight - 24th Sept 2014

Shot in Mexico City, Jack Laurance tells the absorbing story of the friendship between a couple of very feisty riot grrrls for Blonde's I Loved You - and how it all goes bad, when fame beckons. 

JACK LAURANCE:

"I was interested in contrasts. Being 'bad' vs being 'good'. Total freedom vs the trappings of fame/celebrity, and all the vacuousness that goes with it. All framed within a little story about two best friends who drift apart. 

"The idea of contrast really drove the way we told that story. Art direction and colour were obviously a big part of this. DOP Ben Kitchens really did a fantastic job. 

"Most importantly I wanted you to feel like the girl that gets left behind is actually the real 'beauty' and doesn't need a tiara on her head to prove it."
