Robin Mason’s directorial debut Camelot, is a suburban noir about rumour, inheritance and fatal attraction, all beautifully wrapped within a tall tale and featuring a rather fetching green Ford Capri. Robin joins us to discuss story used as a device for understanding difficult situations, and creating fully formed supporting players who are just as compelling as the main characters.
Claudia always imagined she would drive off into the sunset in the beautiful Ford Capri she was promised by her father. Once she set off to escape her town things were going to change and her life would really start. When hard times forced the sale of the car Claudia’s chances of escape seemed a distance fantasy until an advert in the auto trader ignites her desire.
We felt that every character could have their complete own narrative but live within this world that we created.
