Director Statement

This project follows on from my mantra- "Don't wait- create!"

And I'm so glad I chose to make the short of this script idea that I have had for some time now.

We had a month to make something for the Peninsula Short Film Festival and I was determined to do it.

I brought together my strong team to create something special- and we made it happen!

These three characters, Susie, Frank and Mish in 'Me, you & Mish,' were created from real life friends of mine.
I wrote this short from the treatment document of my feature film version.
It was great to workshop this short film script in our rehearsal and work on the characters.

Susie the strict Italian who worked at the family fruit shop.
Mish, the calculating, manipulative lawyer who rules the roost, is head of the house hold and demands control in every aspect of her life.
Frank, the courier driver, who is easily lead - or mislead.

Why are they all living together?
Frank is engaged to Susie and he may as well be engaged to her strict Italian family. Mish has grown up with Frank, in the same neighbourhood.
Frank knows that he has to marry Susie but he so does not want to, perhaps from his guilt of being more emotionally invested in Mish. After all she is the one that has spent more time with him at home. A wild night at their rental has them evicted and Frank knows that now is the time to end it with Susie.
But Susie is the wiser and slams the door shut on Mish and Frank. She realises they are meant to be together as she opens her own door to a new, fresh start- Frank is not what she needs!

The characters needed to come together and live together to realise their strengths and weaknesses. Perhaps Mish and Frank won't stay together and Frank clearly sees her tactful manipulative ways. Or perhaps he opts to be dominated and controlled by her- something Susie could not give him.

The short displays these characters psychology and traits, strengths and weaknesses, mistakes/flaws and corrections. It's this end to the lease that brings a lot more necessary endings - and a new, fresh start for all.
