CHILDISH DARE

Childish Dare is a miniseries of eight episodes about a drug offence with a total running time of 76 minutes, commissioned by ICCA and produced by Keen City.

 

I set out to create films which had the look and feel of a film drama but which were technically accurate both in terms of language used and setting. To achieve this, we recorded real lawyers running the case and then boiled down the transcripts into a screenplay. We trained our cast in legal techniques so that, by rehearsal, everyone had a grounding in correct legal style. The end result is a series with both real dramatic power and unparalleled verisimilitude.
