More influences

Following on from Noah and the Whale I also felt some influences from films.

I really like independent films and thought that some of these would offere great influences when it came to our video.

In particular I like Juno, Nick and Norah's Infinite Play-list and Away We Go.

Juno is a quirky story about a teenage couple who get pregnant. The film follows Juno's story as she tries to find a couple to adopt the baby when it's born. The film features an interesting soundtrack as well.

Nick and Norah's Infinite Play-list is, again, a quirky film about a young boy and girl who fall in love over one crazy night in New York. This film also had an interesting soundtrack.

Away We Go is a little different to Juno and Nick and Norah as it isn't about teenagers. It focuses on a 30-something couple who are looking for the perfect place to raise their child.

What I like about all these films is the low-budget feel about them. It makes the locations and costumes a lot more interesting as they actually have to be filmed in real locations rather than building a set in a studio. The costumes tend to be a lot more interesting as well as they just use cheap clothes which makes for some interesting outfits and costumes for the characters.

I also think that something like this will be a lot easier to recreate as we are working on no budget and will just have to use stuff we can find ourselves.
