A woman finds text messages on an old phone that tell the story of a relationship.
When filmmaker Victoria Mapplebeck recharged her old Nokia phone, she found a compelling real-life story — a story that tells how two people meet, date, break up and deal with an unplanned pregnancy — all within 100 texts
So she started filming. Jim was a big part of the production, and with her for much of the shooting, filmed over an unusually warm London summer. Many of the key sequences were shot in a local park.
Jim is 13 now. He’s funny and smart, and the image of him skipping down the hill in the final sequence of the film is pretty emblematic of who he is. He’s also very proud of the fact that he composed the music for the end credit sequence.
Victoria has a message to any women with kids and a burning desire for a creative life: get productive in the micro-pockets of time you can carve out when your baby is sleeping or your kids are on Xbox.
Do it for you. Do it for your kids.
She shot this film entirely with an iPhone 6 on a budget of 2,000 pounds.
