“I’ve always wanted to make a version of Rihanna’s We Found Love but a more realistic representation of a relationship,” Rebecca Lucy Taylor aka says.
“Music video tropes are so fun and easy to execute and I’ve spent a lifetime trying to avoid them, but I wondered what happens if I just indulge in them.”
“There is nothing more inevitable and sad as the slow demise of passion and enthusiasm for each other in a relationship. I personally avoid it happening these days, the way you become enemies. It’s age old heteronormative bullshit.”
“The ‘ball and chain’ jokes. Fuck that. I wanted to play on that idea, highlight how boring and overdone it is.”
