Directors Vision for ‘Like Waves’

The inspiration for Like Waves came from the people and places I knew growing up on the South Coast: the forgotten coastal towns and the strength and resilience of people who have no easy path in life. Authenticity was key, and as someone heavily inspired by the realist regional dramas of Shane Meadows and Lynne Ramsay I wanted to keep the aesthetics of the film as grounded as possible to help bring in the character of Kaye in particular, to life in the most compelling way possible.
