Romance grows in the most unexpected of places. Spindle are here to present 'Seeds of Love'. This beautiful, sad and funny film was written, directed and stars Gideon Beresford and Behnam Taheri of Rosco 5. Shot during lockdown with a crew of three.
Initially pitched as a ‘lockdown music video’ the duo, who lost that particular pitch, decided that they'd planned enough of it in their heads for it to be worthwhile shooting it themselves anyway. "It was probably for the better," Gideon and Behnam said, "as we really wanted to experiment with some VFX and take it in a slightly more adult direction. We also really wanted to work with top notch composer Sam Thompson - we’d been chatting for a while about doing a chess-themed musical short together - and this seemed like the next best thing. Our EP, Miles Nathan, and [production company] Spindle, really got behind the idea straight away, so we went for it."
The film, which also stars the directors, focusses on a man [Gideon] mourning the loss of his girlfriend mid-lockdown. The chance finding, as he's clearing away her things, of some nail clippings leads him to throw them from the balcony. But one lands in a pot of earth and miraculously spawns his lost love... well, her hand and forearm [played by Behnam], at least. And so begins the strange tale of a love reborn. with top notch composer Sam Thompson - we’d been chatting for a while about doing a chess-themed musical short together - and this seemed like the next best thing.
