No Place Like Home

The film explores a young man's journey into his subconscious. Through a tactile relationship with the clothing that adorns his bedroom walls, he is able to undergo an ethereal, dreamy experience. However, what at first appears to be a pleasant invitation amongst graceful beings soon becomes a chilling and terrifying nightmare.

Director Statement

Whilst writing the screenplay for No Place Like Home, my intention was to craft a film that challenged the notions surrounding what a fashion film should be. Visually, I wanted the film to be arresting, purposeful and unflinching and to explore themes of duality, isolation and romanticism. Tonally, the film is heavily influenced by Ingmar Bergman's Cries and Whispers, whilst the dancers' choreography is inspired by Norman McLaren's Pas De Deux. The imposing sound design was another main proponent for the film; it was an exciting challenge to create a soundscape indicative of the protagonist's mentality and disposition. The use of framing in No Place Like Home was to be nuanced and observatory: the majority of the film takes place via still, long shots in order to give the actors space to perform and explore movement naturally, rather than using the camera to force actions to transpire. As a personal journey, it was important to question and scrutinise the comfort I had always felt within my private space and, by pushing my own boundaries, uncover the surreal and dreamlike secrets hidden on the other side.
