Summer Friends is a two minute fashion short film told in 4 parts. A fleeting, summer love story. A familiar tragedy. A short tale of tender impulse, love and destruction that follows a young couple from meeting to a possible ending. Shot over 2 days in South Florida with a small but ambitious crew, the goal with this project was to match the instinctive nature of young love with a reactive style of filmmaking. There was no over planning with highly-detailed shot lists, instead a general outline was created to keep the flow of the shoot open for creative possibilities. Mike Russell
