We are really inspired by Roman Polanski’s KNIFE IN THE WATER.
Part of Cocoons is set in a Skatepark and we want to portray a tough, unique place where kids hang out, grow up without supervision of the parents and toughen up. Skating and riding is not just a hobby..
The location in KNIFE IN THE WATER, the shapes and lines of both the landscape and the boat hugely influenced their shooting and staging style. The location became a very unique CHARACTER itself. This is something we want achieve in Cocoons.
