Emily decides to air out some dirty laundry and brave the scrutiny of a catty dinner party to win back her name.
What starts off as a young writer’s moody outlook towards her friends and surroundings turns into a fun and witty film about a girl winning her name back. Director Shaya Mulcahy gracefully introduces her character and builds her identity through her adversity. The film’s quick escalation certainly leaves the audience begging for more, while still leave on a satisfying and accomplished note.
This was the first short film that I wrote/directed/edited/produced. It was such an amazing experience to work with such a talented cast and crew. I think it’s extremely important for women to support other women and succeed as a group rather than as individuals.
The film is structurally well shot and depends heavily on the juicy scandalous rise of the main protagonist, which in turn ends up explaining much of the earlier attitude. ‘F is For Friendship’ runs and at an even further depth on the second watch, catching little additional hints you might have missed the first time around.
