"Cassette" - DIR: David Irons - (2011)
Summertime 1986. Like a caged bird on the road to nowhere, ‘ROBYN’ is a young girl looking for a bigger place in the world, she finds this in phantasy figure ‘PHEONIX’ the leather-jacket-wearing, muscle car driving, lead singer in a punk band.
Robyn, identifying with Phoenix changes her clothes, friends & attitude, to transform herself into her new idol. In her new guise, we follow Robyn on her journey of disillusion as her identity unravels & unwinds around her to the complete meltdown of everything she has created.
“Cassette” is a film about becoming your idol, the death of one identity & the birth of another through the clothes worn and how popular culture/music/fashion are on a constant repeating loop...we are stuck on repeat.
The film was constructed to utilize visual storytelling through slick and stylish cinematography that defied its minuscule budget, with David taking full advantage of as many free locations as possible, and only spending money where it needed to be spent.
"Cassette" was David Irons first full-length feature film made with a budget of only £2000, knowing that he had no money and a crew consisting of three people, he acted as writer /cinematographer/ editor/ sound man and director. Sharing producing duties with the films lead actress Kelby Keenan.
The result is "a coming of age/surrealist teen movie" that earned an official selection at Idyllwild film festival and the Vegas VIFF! Film Festival and ultimately went onto win the grand prize at the festivals "No Budget Filmmaking" category. "Cassette" was picked up for distribution at the Cannes Film Festival .
