Did you graduate from Staffordshire University on Thursday 11th July 2019 (AM) if so you maybe on our short video below, the following video was taken as the graduates left the main marquee. This ceremony started at 10.30am and covered the following departments :-
and Joe’ is a Graduate film set in the 90s, which follows two boys lives
growing up. The film features the difficult understanding of men expressing
their own emotions and feelings and features how difficult it is even for
friends to really understand each other. Two boys set out on a night out at
illegal rave to impress Samantha; Mickey’s crush but never end up at the rave
and end up spending the night in a car park. That night they find out more
about each other than they have ever imagined before leading to some dramatic
turn of events.
Laura wanted to create something different
for her last film at University and wanted to push herself by setting it in the
90s. She wanted to pick the topic of illegal raves as it was something not
really covered in many films and also wanted to raise awareness for Male Mental
Health by including a two male leading characters who don’t open up to each
other and discuss their problems.
The film was created by Laura Teaton who has recently graduated from Staffordshire University in Film, TV and Radio with a First Class Honours. The film has won a Progress award on her course and is being entered into Film Festivals.
