Punctual
"What I Love"
3 mins 57s

UK Promos

This gorgeous promo for Punctual's 'What I Love' captures childhood exuberance at its finest. Director Geej Ower follows a lad with seemingly boundless energy around his estate, as he joyfully dances the day away.

The shrewd decision to avoid casting a trained dancer pays off here, as the boy's moves have a rawness and unselfconscious energy which lends the film a sense of authenticity. It feels like an unsupervised afternoon in the middle of the summer holidays, lift miming and all.

Arial shots are used to great effect here, giving us a sense not only of the height of the kid's tower block, but lending a weightlessness to the performance. The final shot shows the boy and a friend dancing on the roof as the camera pans further and further away, reducing them to one tiny story in a vast city. Excellent work.
