Knife in the Water

Image
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.

WELCOME TO COCOONS

Cocoons is an upcoming graduation film from the National Film & Television School. It is directed by the super talented Joasia Goldyn and produced by the equally talented Daniel Demissie.

Cocoons is a story about the difficulties to connect with those nearest to you but at the same time having an overwhelming desire for closeness.
At the centre of our story is Stella, a sensitive and independent 12 year old girl who forms an unusual bond with BMX rider, Fixer, who is a charming but awkward 14 year old boy.

Cocoons is currently in pre-production and will shoot mid July.

Stay tuned here for more updates and information about the film!
