Neither buddy-movie caper, nor saccharine, rom-com fare, Late is a portrait of true female friendship: knotty, supportive, frustrating, indispensable. Lauren and Ellen are normal young women, facing a normal situation. One that almost every woman faces, and not once; the sort of thing that very few men are privy to: something potentially life-changing, but also everyday.
And they don’t change radically (very few people change over the course of twenty-four hours), they just carry on, their friendship strengthened by an- other moment of kindness
This was our most challenging short to date. The film is set in the early 90’s so we decided to shoot on Super-16mm film. We also set ourselves the target of producing the film with an 80% female crew.
We shot Late in June 2017 and aim to have the film completed in November 2017.
