The project is called Guardian Angel. It's a 7min student (2nd year) film exploring the grief of a young girl, Iris, who recently lost her mother. The story begins with Iris's grandfather arguing within the car about speaking to somebody, as always she doesn't listen and plugs her headphones in. They arrive at their destination and she screams back 'The only person who I want to talk to, isn't here.' She enters the counselling waiting room. Another young girl rushes in, irritably bubbly. She begins to annoy, asking Iris intimate questions about why she's there, Iris blocks her out. Afterward, she walks home - plugging in a specific song, emotionally drained. The other girl rushes behind her trying to catch up. In a heated chase, Iris gives up and explodes her internal feelings about why she doesn't want to talk about her mother's death - sarcastically listing the things she can't believe won't happen anymore. The girl hands out her scarf she left in the waiting room, then reveals she lost her mum too - it's something you learn to deal with. Arriving home, she embraces her grandfather, then hesitantly opens a door upstairs that hasn't been opened in a long time. Her mother's room, filled with music collections, vinyls, CD's. Iris accepts what has happened - confronts it, faces her fear of losing her mum to be true. Flicking through photos, whilst playing her mum's song on her vinyl, it becomes clear the girl she met today was her mum when she was young. Looking out for her in a time of darkness, her guardian angel.

Young Emotional Female - Iris Thomson

The character has an immense emotional complexity. Losing her mum completely shifted her world upside down and hasn't been the same since. She's very stubborn and doesn't want to talk to anyone about the death, she doesn't want to believe it has happened. Her emotionally explosion of her backed up feelings has to be real, empowering, compelling and genuine. Once she reveals her emotions, her character arcs, accepting the event and being stronger for it - the way her mum wanted her to be.

Females, aged 18 to 23 from York, UK

Young Female - Julie Thomson

Julie is playing her younger self, mother to Iris and daughter to George. Julie becomes Iris's guardian angel to elevate her out of this dark grief she's experiencing, let her see the bigger picture. Julie lost her own mother as a child, so can guide Iris from beyond the grave. As her younger-self, she's bubbly, quirky, extravagant, completely the opposite to Iris. She was the girl Iris once was, almost foreshadowing what she'll revert to after accepting the event. Kind and inspirational.
