April stacks shelves at the local supermarket in Whitby with a baby carrier strapped to her chest. Inside the carrier comfortably sits Huggo – a giant toy bunny.
Huggo is a difficult subject. A heartfelt, grief-stricken story softly wrapped in humour and eccentricities, reminiscent of Back to Life (2019) and End of the Fucking World (2017).
We plan to add a dreamlike, retro vibe to the photography by using a Cinebloom filter, similar to Inside Llewyn Davis (2013), teamed with
strong, coloured lighting as shown in Lala Land (2016), underscored with a soft, 80’s/90’s inspired soundtrack with the aid of local artists and musicians.
Wes Anderson-esque symmetry will be used to accentuate the understanding and sharing of grief between characters, such as the bench scene between April and Julia, and April and Will’s hotel scene.
