Time To Straighten Up!

Once again me and Conor have came up with another bizarre idea but this time we have a goal in mind…. CMF are hosting an event in association with Elfenworks all about Social Justice and after our success last time we thought ‘What the hell!’. The issue however, was thinking of something that fitted with the theme…

The idea came about when we were recording an episode of ‘PAL Gamers’. Conor jokingly said to me ‘Oh you are SO straight’ and that was it! The film almost wrote itself after that. The concept of taking the stereotype of LGBT community being the minority and flipping it around fitted the bill easily. However, that wasn’t good enough in my eyes. I wanted to make a comedy about something serious. Mainly because, I have seen plenty of films that try and deal with serious issues like prejudice but I always felt they took themselves TOO seriously. Heck I know, it can be tough. The last thing you want to do is offend someone! Then again, as these other films became SO dramatic the characters to me became really unrelatable. I mean, I understand life is hard for minorities but by stripping any kind of comedy out of your film (whether the message is serious or not) often makes your characters completely unlikeable. I’m hoping with our take on the subject matter the characters themselves will be a lot more accessible to the audience!

Anyways, we are just about to start auditioning roles in the next couple of days. So I’ll probably report back once the films in the bag and let you know how its gone! Until then… Enjoy this lil image Ed put together! (Oh and like the Facebook page!).
