A dramatised film made for the UK's Department of Employment to promote the employment of school leavers as trainees.
The drama takes place as an ‘old school’ father lunches with his more progressive daughter and they discuss their respective business attitudes and beliefs and their views on recruiting staff.
The film employs dolly and jib tracking to move neatly from scene to scene and utilises theatrical style lighting changes to bring in ancillary characters to present their views.
Made in the 1990s it is a dated piece in many ways but the film- making techniques were all shot in camera on a very limited budget which is why it’s here today.
Filmed on 16mm film. Lighting Camera; Chris Howard.
Written and directed by Patrick Drummond for Talkback Productions.
