Practically Married

Here’s an episode of this (romcom!) web series I worked on with some funny friends. I had the pleasure of shooting and directing it. Check it out!


HOW TO INTERPRET THE DANCE SCENE:

hayley: it is weird being back here
elijah: not unpleasant i hope? (elijah!flirt)
hayley: not entirely (coy flick of the eyes i.e. hayley!flirt)
elijah: are you entirely sure you shouldn’t be here with us? (see: elijah actually asking, with me, not with us)
hayley: why elijah? (see: hayley actually asking, do you care about me, tell me the truth. give me a reason to come back) [elijah’s continued silence just pisses her off] because you don’t think its safe in big bad wolf country? [he wants to say, NO DAMMIT BECAUSE I LOVE YOU, but can’t] i’m not gonna sit in a rocking chair and knit booties. or haven’t you figured that out yet? [he wants to say THAT’S NOT WHAT I MEANT but can’t and now she’s even more pissed off] enter jackson!who who wins a dance by default.

this is what happens when married couples cannot communicate
