Imogen Harrison explores identity and sexuality in her absorbing promo for Luz. 

Set in a coastal caravan park, the narrative encompasses a delicate and beautifully presented love story, between two girls on the cusp of adulthood. 

In a series of events that many viewers will relate to, the true nature of their relationship is blurry and uncertain, but their connection is undeniable. 

DoP Simon Plunket creates an air of stillness and introspection with the cinematography, with each shot carefully composed to mirror the themes of the concept. 

IMOGEN HARRISON: 

Luz and I worked together to create a script that told an LGBTQ+ love story and a universal one.

"The Author is a story about love, friendship and navigating whether and when a certain boundary should be crossed.

"Luz and I worked together closely to create a script that told both an LGBTQ+ love story and a universal one. Falling in love with a close friend is a familiar experience for most, particularly when growing up. I wanted to tell a story that inspires people to take the first step into that love… even though the risk may feel scary.

"This video explores a story of friendship, love and self-acceptance, set in Northern Ireland and featuring Lola Petticrew (Dating Amber) & Maya O’Shea (Normal People) - their performances are truly magical. Their characters give us a compassionate insight into themes of uncertain identity, internalised homophobia and teenage boredom."
