Self Initiated Contextual Reference: Swallows and Amazons

January 30, 2012

A 1974 film adaptation of Arthur Ransome’s children books, directed by Claud Whatham and written by David Wood.

When I looked at the music video for ‘Atlas Hands’ I made a link between the imagery and concept and the film ‘Swallows and Amazons’ which is about two tribes of children who in their imagination create a rivalry of piracy on a lake in the Lake District one summer.  

From the film I want to take that idea of imagination and innocence of childhood into my own film, and also it continues the theme of discovery in a different, more literal context.
