Private Project


Liv is unhappy. Her boyfriend Dean is helping her to pack her things. She appears to be leaving him. They travel by car to an industrial location and carry the boxes to a disused workshop. Her belongings are placed on an empty table. Dean cannot watch and leaves the room. Dressed in protective clothing, Liv takes a wrecking bat to their memories. Smashing everything to pieces while Dean waits patiently outside. The process is revealed as a well rehearsed cathartic exercise; possibly not the first time she has expressed herself in this way.

Director Statement

SAER wanted to see something with a short story for the Disruptor track, they also wanted to see something explosive. The idea of a rage room came up, a place where you take out your frustrations on innocent objects. Si volunteered a couple of old friends that studied drama together. Disruptor’s video was pretty much written around Liv and Dean and the opportunity to take a bat to some fragile objects.
It was interesting creating the dynamic between them; they are clearly unconventional as couples go. In a way we are left to question whether or not they break up or if this is some kind of complex ritual they both indulge in.
