Synopsis

A routine job interview goes sideways when the applicant gets completely honest about what it’s like to be an artist trapped in a corporate cubicle.

Rationale

I once read a quote on a fridge magnet that said “Speak the truth, but leave immediately after”, but what if you have spoken this truth to someone who has the power to hire you for a job - one that you need to make ends meet? When I was first approached to direct Honestly Charlotte I was reminded of some of my own experiences juggling 'real' jobs while pursuing my own artistic endeavours. As Charlotte negotiates her need for work against her desire for a life as an artist, her perspective of the day-to-day grind struck a chord with me, and will perhaps also ring true for anyone else who has ever worked in an office. As a first-time director, I was very fortunate to work with great material, talented cast and a stellar all-female team. I couldn't have asked for a better debut.

Director CV Sarah Hedar

Sarah has a natural patience and sense of humour that lends itself to the ebb and flow of the creative process. With a strong technical and artistic background, Sarah focuses her attention on visual storytelling that promotes empowerment for women, critical thinking and helping to make this world just a little bit brighter.

The "managing hostile interactions" brochure in the background made me laugh - perfect prop placement.

I really enjoyed this short film . . . it certainly brought back memories of looking for short-term summer employment, all the while "plotting my escape" to travel! Well done, Sarah, cast and crew!
