Sweet As Candy

Short Film (Full Length) – 2003

G
Anyone

In the pop-plastic milk bar universe of Bubblegum Valley, love is on the rocks. Blue (Andrew Jolly) pulls up to the Paperdoll Diner in his mint cadillac. Inside, Candy (Tanya Horo) hears gossip that Blue has been untrue. Will Blue's musical fantasy reunite him with his true love? Will his gel hold his quiff up for the length of the film? Kezia Barnett's gleefully over the top short celebrates marching girls, musicals and 1950s rock'n'roll. Barnett went on to make a run of distinctive music videos. The music was supplied by indie duo The Brunettes; Elemeno P's Justyn Pilbrow composed the title song. 

A special thanks to everyone that made the dream come true.
