A director we’ve been watching with great interest here on DN, Rob Savage’s work consistently grabs our attention. That’s why I asked him to join us on the podcast so I could discover how it all began at the tender age of 17 when he wrote, directed, edited, shot and co-produced his debut feature Strings, a film which depicts those quiet, awkward moments of teenage relationships we rarely get to witness on screen.
A German exchange student begins an impulsive and ultimately destructive relationship with a shy British boy in her final weeks before returning to Munich and her warring family.
Originally the plan was to shoot it on a Flipcam & make it a Mumblecore movie.
Strings is now available to watch online for free via the BFI Player.
