4 months ago Tamara was involved in an accident that has left her with a large, nasty scar. Although healed, Tamara suspects Miri now sees her as tarnished. When confronted with her unwillingness to become intimate again, Miri opens up about her desire to understand the pain her partner went through.
Desperate to bring balance back into their relationship Miri proposes an extreme solution; she needs a scar of her own.
Hookworm is being produced with great emphasis on precision filmmaking; Tamara and Miri will be the sole focus of the film and as such will carry its pace and energy from beginning to end. Camera movement and production design will all be influenced by the mood and story of the characters. With a close environment and two leads, we hope to achieve a restrained, emotive piece of cinema that contrasts the domesticity of a relationship with the fear and romanticism of a “broken body”.
Concept, cinematography and production design moodboard
We already have 25% of our budget secured, and the team are working hard to fundraise more money behind the scenes, however to give each department the support they need to fulfil their visions for the film we need outside support. With your financial backing we can meet productions costs for the following;
- Cast fees and accommodation
- Costume and make up
- Location hire and set dressing
