Hey all! We are a bunch of Final Year Film students from NTU School of Art, Design & Media looking for money to fund our Thesis Film!
We are making a 10-15 minute, absurdist, short film called LAUNDERAMA.
LAUNDERAMA is a thesis short film tells a wacky journey of self-discovery about a lady named Desiree.
Working for her mother in her laundry shop, Desiree has always been pushed to the back-end, doing mainly the cleaning, drying and ironing of clothes. This causes her feel resentment towards her mother and dissatisfied with her life as there is no progression in sight.
Her way of coping with her unsatisfactory life is through wearing one of her go-to outfit to fantasize a life where she takes charge. Through wearing the outfit, she exudes a wealth of confidence she never had. The only problem is, her go-to outfit belongs to one of the laundry shop’s customers.
One day, the customer finally comes to retrieve her outfit. Devastated, Desiree plots to retrieve the outfit, uncovering a deeper truth behind her mother and the laundry shop. Using her new knowledge as leverage, she emerges from the back of the laundromat to work at the front.
