Life Lines

Homeless and wayward, Brel seeks structure. He joins an organisation that gives you a daily script to follow. The consistency of his new life turns to mundanity, saved only by working with the beguiling Mori - a woman with a past who wants to just stick to the script.

He is drawn to filmmaking because films mean an awful lot to him.

Director Statement

From Action On The Side, a London-based film-making collective tasked with creating great short films over a month's worth of weekends, Life Lines is a universal story of liberty, loyalty and love.

Director Tunbi Oluyede was inspired by his experiences with the monotony of school and the pain of a break-up. The message he aims to convey with Life Lines is "Don't let things you feel that are bigger than you be in control of your thoughts and the way you think."

In directing the actors, Oluyede used music as a way of choreographing, specifically the kiss scene. The chosen music was an inspiration to him when writing the script. His influences include 'The Place Beyond The Pines' and 'No Country For Old Men'.
