Director Biography - Nathan Mckenzie, Jordan Williams

Having experience in the music industry including sound engineering for 20+ years, managing, helping and producing artists in the UK music scene, most notably an artist named Tereza Delzz.

Nathan has also worked for a number of years with children and young adults, running music projects and studio sessions in youth centres, play centres and after-school clubs predominantly in East London.

In addition Nathan works as a freelancer due to a keen interest in technology providing services which include web development, graphic design, SFX and musical compositions for film/animation, this knowledge has proven to be transferable and a great benefit in moving forward with post production activities.

Around 2015 he developed an interest in videography, learning the basics from YouTube. Borrowing his sister's budget DSLR camera lead to pitching some of his zany ideas to friends which was met with a bit of resistance, once these ideas were more refined; friends began to see the potential and began to support the first project which literally had no budget.

With neither the team or Nathan having previous experience in lead production activities, they set out to make their first comedy sketch, with the assistance of a young and budding videographer named Jordan Williams.

Nathan then saw the potential to turn the sketch into a full length documentary and having full creative control turned out to be a beneficial experience. Thus birthing the vision of a full length comedy documentary (Mockumentary).

Director Statement

The Documentary.

In brief I wanted to depict the taboo subject in a humorous way removing the punch from strong public views, having viewers laughing at bigoted comical cut scenes which question the legitimacy of historical facts presented.
To then present a curve-ball further down the timeline regarding the serious nature of health concerns styled in the same comical manner of prior cut scenes, causing the viewer shock at the findings whilst also questioning if it's a joke.

This was achieved by making the facts, findings and stereotypical views lighthearted and fun visually. Not wanting the documentary to be sexually graphic also furthered the use of cartoon styled visuals, helping lighten the mood whilst offering some interviewees an easily forgotten appearance.

I wanted all interviewees to feel comfortable without feeling the need to tone down for alternate thinkers,and instead rustle feathers bringing light to our habits, judgements and excuses we make for our own idealism's and addictions.

The predominant use of regular people with respect to age, religion, ethnic background and opinions was crucial, as the idea was to use less celebrities to gain raw upfront testimonies. I defused strong views with funny narration and the use of memes/popups so the viewer can find that views are not always hostile in intent, just misunderstood/misguided as growth always changes perspective demonstrated in other testimonies.

I decided to introduce health a little late into the mix and not to directly use professionals within the medical field, just slight references for the viewer to be nudged, thus welcoming excuses and statements of denial due to a perception of the documentary looking like there was little research done to prove credibility with the facts being questionable (which wasn't the case).

I then defuse the health facts with comical narration and teasing provocative scenes of Jamaica before focusing and concluding with Jamaican interviews.

The Comedy Sketch

Was to enlist the telling of a story which had a number of different scenarios, without prolonging screen time, as the secondary jokes may not be understood or caught by other cultures whilst watching alongside the primary narrative.

This was accomplished through steady paced split screen visuals whilst looking pleasing in style with simplistic borders sliding in and out.

The goal was to get a natural realistic setting with people of little or no acting experience but colourful persona’s to create improvisation and support the mood for the two experienced actors playing lead. Which in turn lead to a beautiful authentic chemistry without forced or over exaggerated expressions.

The bedroom scene is where sound takes center stage without the need to be graphic and still have a shocking impact for the viewer.

The use of music, foley/SFX and dubbing played an important part in the delivery of the sketch. Having frequently seen sound neglected or overused in other no budget UK content. I wanted a good balance while being noticeable of its key role.
