A queercore romance - a visceral and immersive exploration of the power of the mosh pit and finding love in the most unlikely of places.
Commissioned as part of the BMW Filmmaking Challenge 2023. With a focus on supporting the creativity of the UK’s future filmmaking talent, the Challenge draws inspiration from the ultra-wide 31.3-inch rear passenger screen of the BMW i7. The filmmakers have been tasked with bringing a unique story to life in just 90 seconds, adhering to the theme of Evolving Perspectives.
Written & Directed by Jason Bradbury / Produced by Cheri Darbon Starring Max Thomas & Jerome Scott and music from Death Goals.
"They have stories that are not anywhere in the tapestry of film and television. They need to be heard."
Quotes from the judges:
"The film is an artistic force of nature. Every decision in the filmmaking process was filled with intent and served the narrative of the story. I knew watching the winning film that this was made by a filmmaking team that we will undoubtedly be seeing more of in the future."
"I was looking for a film that left me eager to watch it again, one that left me craving more. In 'WE COLLIDE’, there is a standout moment when the two stories and characters seamlessly merge into one—a poignant and pioneering, visually striking cinematic moment."
"When judging or watching any film, it may start with the eyes and ears, but it always ends up, for me, in the belly. 'WE COLLIDE' made me feel an entire raft of emotions in just 90 seconds - it took me on an entire journey. The talent we’ve experienced is insane."
