Directed by KATE AIDLEY - 15 minutes
Curfew, an innocent tale of first love, has a little of the fairy story about it. There are no mobile phones in this world, and the young teenagers seem to be concerned only with rope swings and fishing with jam jars. But there are teeth behind the whimsy - wolves roam the woods at night. It is a fairy story, after all.
This was the fourth film I'd cut for Kate, so the working process was as simple and easy as we could wish for. The script - also by Kate - is deceptively full of plot, and our main concerns during the edit were with making sure objects were left so they could be picked up again, and other practical considerations. The performances were strong, and the camera direction assured, so we spent our time polishing and improving instead of fixing problems - a real pleasure.
