Inspired by the children's game Red Rover, the film's intent was to express the emotional impact of playing this violent yet popular outdoor game.

The film is about the emotional experience of power and violence broken down to the basic elements of anticipation, excitement and fear. First filmed as a series of glimpses then layered and montaged, allowed this most exciting game to be expressed in a non-linear yet evocative way.

Shot on 16mm film, montaged using an optical printer.

Music - Julian ‘Bev‘ Moore
