Ash and Claudia, both in their early twenties, are a couple living together in Wales, UK. Ash is of Asian appearance and Claudia is Caucasian. One of them is faced with deportation because of the British immigration laws. Trying to defeat the immigration system, they decide to get married thinking this will keep them together. However they are then faced with the disappointing news that they are below the minimum annual salary in order to stay in the UK. This forces Claudia to interview for a new job as a last attempt for the couple to stay together in the country. Throughout her tense interview, we revisit Claudia's relationship with Ash in a series of flashbacks, from the first time they met to their married life. Unfortunately Claudia is unsuccessful in her interview and ultimately is forced to say her last goodbyes to Ash at the airport. Ash hands over a suitcase and Italian passport to Claudia, revealing she is the one being sent back home.

The message of the music video is to highlight the issue of immigration in the UK and also to challenge racial stereotypes.

This music video is being produced for South Wales Indie Rock band Falling Under for their single “Pipedream”. The band have had multiple songs played on numerous occasions on BBC Radio Wales Introducing, as well as playing on The National Film and Television School’s live TV channel. The music video for their most recent single “Tiger Lily” premiered at the 2018 Killers concert at The Liberty Stadium in Swansea in front of 35,000 people.

We are multiple award winning filmmakers who have been working in the industry for the past few years since graduating from the prestigious Newport Film School. We always aim to produce films with ambitious subject matter including multiple short films that have won awards around the globe. Some of our shorts have also gathered more than 1 million views on YouTube.

We are planning to shoot solely in Wales, mainly in Newport, Cardiff but also West Wales. The shooting dates are 14th, 15th and 16th of August. Travel, accommodation and food expenses will be covered but unfortunately as it is a micro budget music video, we won’t be able to pay a fee. But this is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen your portfolio, and also we will be entering it into numerous film festivals and the My Rode Reel film competition which we were finalists in last year.

Claudia

Claudia is an Italian woman in her mid twenties who is married to her husband Ash who she met at Cardiff University. She came to the UK from Italy in order to study art but since graduating has struggled to find work in her desired subject, which has led to her to work odd jobs part time in bars. Claudia is kind, caring, but sometimes overly optimistic where she often has pipedreams of quickly becoming a highly successful painter which are unrealistic.

Ash

Ash is a British Asian man also in his mid twenties who is married to Claudia. When he met Claudia at University he was studying Business with the hope of launching his own clothing company. Similarly to Claudia, he has struggled since graduating, the business didn’t kick off due to lack of investment so he has been working as a waiter in a restaurant to pay his bills. Ash is smart, driven and compassionate, but he is also very much a realist grounded in reality.
