It can be pretty lonely at the top. People just seem to look at you differently when you’re the boss.
A film made for the Reed competition 2012 which focussed on the theme of ‘The Boss’. The film turned out pretty much exactly as we had pictured it – offering a tender look at it’s main character – and made the long list of 50 films from 500. The challenge we faced was making sure it wasn’t too similar to something out of The Office, which I think we achieved. Originally we were looking for some melancholic and tragic music, but landed on this upbeat and jolly track which just seemed to set the film off so well, and gave emphasis to the boss’ hopeful insistence of seeing the world a certain way.
