This week I met South London Shorts' first SLS-funded filmmaker, Wayne Mazadza, in Edinburgh where we talked about Wayne's inspiration for the film. Check out what he said below:
SLS: So what inspired you to write The Rubik's Cube Theory?
WAYNE: Well... every day I would drive past this caravan. Every day. I'll be honest with you alright, there's a field, and right in the middle of the field there's this caravan which is just... there. And it's just this odd thing because everything else is clear but this is old and rusty. So I saw that... but I never really thought about it. A friend of mine has kids who were playing with a... a starlight, and I think that's when I first got the idea, because I wanted -- I just imagined two people in a small room, in the dar, playing with that starlight. And then it hit me with the caravan and I was like - okay, yeah, but what's the whole story -- why are they in the caravan? Because it could be anywhere else. It could be any other room. That's when the back story started to kick in, and I was like, is it real?
